Introduction

Ads & Affiliates, Popups & iFrames

Lucid Pro-Adblock is a plugin to display an overlay upon entering the page if the user has no AdBlocker installed.


Advertising that appears on Web pages may pose a security risk. At present, most of the advertising consists of embedded third party content. These contents are not under editorial control of the owner of the website and adds a repeated criminal exploitable attack vector to the site. An adblocker protects a user's surfing and is an important part of the digital self-defense.

The plugin uses JavaScript to display the overlay. The appearance can be customized in the backend with CSS properties. The displayed text can be supplied directly at the plugin settings, also with HTML formatting, or an article for displaying in the popup can be selected, with or without the use of content plugins. The display can be limited to certain pages / menu items and user groups.

The plugin installs only from Joomla 3.4.x and above.
Language files for English and German are included.

History:
V1.4.1
- The Joomla 4 support has been removed from the plugin, because since the latest beta of Joomla 4 the included Bootstrap framework has been changed from version 4 to version 5 and with version 5 also the modal dialog of Bootstrap has been changed significantly. I have decided to no longer develop this plugin in the future.
V1.4
- Version 1.4 is now also compatible with Joomla 4 and was tested with Beta 6. For Joomla 4 the modal dialog of Bootstrap 4 is used instead of the Mootools SqueezeBox, because Mootools is no longer included in Joomla 4.
- Added: The possibility to set the wait time, in how many days the popup will not be shown again, to 0. This will cause the popup to be displayed only once, and then never again, unless the web storage is deleted from the client browser (can be done e.g. with Configuration Mode).
V1.3.1
- Fixed. Fetching the Joomla document object to early in the request cycle.
V1.3
- Changed: Cookie handling for the wait time of the overlay exchanged with web storage handling. Thus a cookie is not needed anymore.
- Added: Option to turn off the message at the bottom of the overlay about the wait time.
V1.2
- Fixed: Configuration mode doesn't worked correctly anymore, after deactivating it the first time.
- Add: Update server.
V1.1
- Add: Detection for the popular mobile device / browser, to not show the overlay on mobile devices.

Lucid Pro-Adblock ist ein Plugin zur Anzeige eines Overlays beim Betreten der Seite, wenn der Benutzer keinen AdBlocker installiert hat.

Werbung, die auf Webseiten erscheint, kann ein Sicherheitsrisiko darstellen. Gegenwärtig besteht der Großteil der Werbung aus eingebetteten Inhalten von Drittanbietern. Diese Inhalte unterliegen nicht der redaktionellen Kontrolle des Website-Eigentümers und fügen der Website einen wiederholt kriminell ausnutzbaren Angriffsvektor hinzu. Ein Adblocker schützt das Surfen eines Benutzers und ist ein wichtiger Teil der digitalen Selbstverteidigung.

Das Plugin verwendet JavaScript zur Anzeige des Overlays. Das Erscheinungsbild kann im Backend mit CSS-Eigenschaften angepasst werden. Der angezeigte Text kann direkt in den Plugin-Einstellungen, auch mit HTML-Formatierung, angegeben werden, oder es kann ein Artikel zur Anzeige im Popup ausgewählt werden, mit oder ohne Verwendung von Content-Plugins. Die Anzeige kann auf bestimmte Seiten / Menüpunkte und Benutzergruppen beschränkt werden.

Das Plugin kann nur ab Joomla 3.4.x und höher installiert werden.
Sprachdateien für Englisch und Deutsch sind enthalten.

- Die Joomla 4 Unterstützung wurde wieder entfernt, da seit der neuesten Beta von Joomla 4 das enthaltene Bootstrap Framework von Version 4 auf Version 5 umgestellt und bei Version 5 auch der Modal-Dialog von Bootstrap erheblich verändert wurde. Ich habe mich dazu entschlossen dieses Plugin in Zukunft nicht mehr weiter zu entwickeln.
