    This problem was repeated here a lot and no solution was given. There are A LOT of users out there using adblock plus and this is translated in a lot of users that won’t see the social icons from the header, footer, the sharing icons bar from the posts or any social icons you might display through your website.

    Of course, you can whitelist the website and the problem is solved but we know that and I can not say the same for our readers.

    If you play with the adblock plus a little bit you will see that it is triggered by the following rules(plus others probably, depends on what social icons you have enabled for your website):

    /likebox.
    ##.av-share-box
    ##.avia_fb_likebox
    ##.social_bookmarks
    ##A[href^=”http://linkedin.com/shareArticle?”%5D
    ##[href^=”http://reddit.com/submit”%5D
    ##a[href^=”http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/”%5D
    ##a[href^=”http://vk.com/share.php?url=”%5D
    ##a[href^=”http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?”%5D
    ##a[href^=”http://www.tumblr.com/share/”%5D
    ##a[href^=”https://plus.google.com/share?url=”%5D
    ##a[href^=”https://twitter.com/share?”%5D
    ##a[title=”Facebook”]
    ##a[title=”Twitter”]
    ##a[title=”Youtube”]

    I am sure you will think of a better solution to solve this critical problem but here are some questions I have that might also give you some ideas:

    Is there a way to mask or rename with javascript the element IDs? (For the future it could be a solution to have this elements named from admin, so we can react fast and easy when they will end up on the list and just come up with new names)

    How could I disable or change the titles “Facebook”, “Twitter” etc?

    Also, for hrefs would it be a solution to use URL shorteners?

    PS. Besides the obvious problem of having the social icons blocked, ad block plus also messes with the design while blocking this icons. Just to emphasise the critical nature of this problem.

    Hey!

    I don’t think there is a way to mask or rename the default social network share URLs:

    ##A[href^=”http://linkedin.com/shareArticle?”]
    ##[href^=”http://reddit.com/submit”]
    ##a[href^=”http://pinterest.com/pin/create/button/”]
    ##a[href^=”http://vk.com/share.php?url=”]
    ##a[href^=”http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?”]
    ##a[href^=”http://www.tumblr.com/share/”]
    ##a[href^=”https://plus.google.com/share?url=”]
    ##a[href^=”https://twitter.com/share?”]

    Can you post a link to your site so i can test it on my end (with Adblock enabled)?

    Hi!

    Which browsers exactly? may be a CORS-related issue, refer to:

    I checked with my client.. he said Chrome

    #474605

    Can you post a screenshot of the issue? i’m not noting it on my end (Chrome / OS X 10.10).

    Regards,
    Josue

    #474607

    Not doing it on mine either.. Chrome or Safari on OS X. I’ll have to ask the client.

    I added the code to .htaccess, will see if it resolved it. Thanks!
