Slippery Ad Servers


Please follow the below template, it will help us to help you!

Expected Behaviour:

Ads occasionally get by in pop-ups and banners

Is there a good way of identifying the providing server?

My basic install is working very well and Gravity is up to date.

I am trying to take a more of a scalpel approach, than a sledgehammer.
Is that better or is adding a few hundred or thousand domains via additional lists not a big of a deal?

Thank You!!

Actual Behaviour:

[replace this text with what is actually happening]

Debug Token:

[Replace this text with the debug token provided from running pihole -d (or running the debug script through the web interface]

Thank You!
I will give it a go.
So far I could only come up with list-based solutions; that would be a Battle Ship hit methodology.


NSThingy Whitelist Assistant is pretty much exactly what I was looking for.
Good call on the FAQ Link.

Hopefully, an easy follow-up question:
It showed the inspect function in chrome, which is neat but is there a way to make it function opposite?
like hover over the web pane and it would highlight the code on the other pane?

I could probably scrape it and run it local; but that’s pretty iffy and a lot of work for a stray banner ad or whatever.

Thanks again!


What do you mean by this?


Answered my own Question.
So you know it was easy :slight_smile:
I was trying to be able to point at the page and see the corresponding page elements.
Thanks Again!
