"Banners" = Bad in Ad Blocker World

Posted by jkahn on March 24, 2014 · 1 min read

Just ran into a rather aggravating issue...

In building a site meant to preview mobile ads, I used the term "banners" in the URL to point to image previews then spent 2+ hours tracking down why it worked in my development environment but not in production.

Luckily a colleague pointed out my ad blocker, which seems to have a broad match on the word "banner"...block all. Changing the name in the path fixed the problem.
