If you are a new user and you use any form of advertisement blocking (e.g. AdBlock) on your browser, you would have been greeted with a neat little message saying “Doh! It appears that you are using AdBlock software…”.
The purpose of this post is to show you how to create such a message for your own website. I had this idea from a comment I found on one of my favorite blogs (Webmaster Source) regarding combating AdBlock.
Before I go on, let me say that I am not interested in discussing/debating the use and ethics of AdBlock software in depth in this post. I’m planning on writing a post with my research and data on the effects of discouraging AdBlock use in a later post, so let’s save that discussion for another time. For now I would like you to evaluate the pros and cons of this mod and decide for yourself if you would like to install the mod or not.
