Ad blocking broken? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

As you can see, I told it to block that, yet it isn't..
Your first expression doesn't look valid. There are notes on this elsewhere in the forum, but IIRC if one of the expressions is bad, none of the following ones will be honored.
You have to use regular expressions, not glob patterns.

In a regular expression, "*" means "the char before the * 0 or more times". E.g.: k* "means zero or more ks", not "a k and anything behind", which it would mean in a glob pattern.

"." means "any char" in a regular expression, so if you want to achieve the glob meaning of "*", you have to type ".*".

Thus, your pattern should be ".*googlesyndication.*", or just "googlesyndication", as this will match on any string containing "googlesyndication".
