• Hi,
    I have gone through your response on blocking of ads but I am still finding it difficult to block popup ads. Also would like to know if the ads can be blocked in the gui interface.

  • Yes, if you install squidguard. The popups themselves open if you don't enable "Block Popup" in your Browser. If not, you see the empty window or the redirect-page you specify.

  • Also, i've come across a lot of sites these days that do NOT employ the legacy pop up control. They use other methods embedded in the webpages which renders pop up filtering useless.

  • search the forum (dont know exact thread, if i find it i will post it), theres a way to do it with squid, instead of an ad you see a blank image or some text, works good from what i hear
