    Bypass Popup Blockers

    Hey, people are blocking my ads on my site, and I only have one that popups per day.

    I have seen a few sites useing a script to bypass my popup blocking software, and I was wondering if anyone knew a code I could use , ( rather in php or javascript) that would allow me to bypass a persons popup blocker, and show a popup ad.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Well I hate pop-ups and I think you should die for using them. Don't bypass the blocker, pop-ups make people angry, people don't like pop-ups. Embed the ads on your page, it's a lot less annoying that way. But anyway, PHP can't be used to create pop-ups. It's a SERVER side language, not a CLIENT side language. It can send out javascript to open windows, but it can't itself open windows. Javascript is the only method that will pop windows on a page load/unload, and when JavaScript is disabled, there is nothing you can do. So again! Plus, the pop-up blockers have gotten quite advanced and so you'd be hard pressed to find one that actually works.

    Well I know where i'm not wanted, lol, om

    Yea I know, but this one only pops up once a day, due to cookies.

    I have got google toolbar, and Avant browsers built in popup blocker, and the sites I use, still manage to get through them.

    Do you think it would work if I encripted the script that does it. This way the blocker wont b able to read it?

    I don't think there's a way to encrypt it so that it won't say "window.open()"

    Thats fundamentally what the blocker will look for & I believe the most important part in "popping up"

    Aye, the programs read the source code, and encryption doesn't protect the source code. The browser must read the source code, and so do the blockers. I use Mozilla Firefox (built in blocker) haven't gotten any pop-ups since I switched. The point is, unless its a user action caused event, such as the user clicking a link which triggers a function, it's gonna be blocked.

    Perhaps instead of an "onclick" occurrence...you try a "mousover" trick. Like if the cookie will only allow it to popup once a day...then have it popup when they move the mouse over your banner or something. The cookie should make sure that it only pops once.

    There are lots of places where sites bypass your blocker. Thanks for yur suggestions, I just tried encrypting my code, and never worked.

    I tried

    <script>
    <!--
    document.write(unescape("%3Cscript%3E%0D%0Awindow.open%28%22http%3A//www.yahoo.com%22%29%0D%0A%3C/script%3E"));
    //-->
    </script>

    and one other which still got blocked.

    Any other suggestions?

    Look, these programs act like a browser, if the browser can read the code, so can the blockers. If they can't, then neither can the browser so it still won't work. And, maybe you have I poor pop-up blocker, but Mozilla filters them all out for me unless I act to open them. And I mouseover might work, and if your only doing it once a day, MAYBE. That SHOULD get past MOST blockers.

    Yah, I have one: Don't use popups. Noone will pay attention to them anymore, so they're useless. Text ads are the only ones I pay attention to personally, and what site have you seen that gets thru Google? I'd seriously like to know.

    I’m with everyone else here: popups are the devil!

    Also, it is equally a question of whether you should do it as it is of whether you can do it. People dislike popups, and I think they are very ineffective. Like Omega, I would pay more attention to a banner/text ad than do a popup (which, thanks to Firebird’s built-in popup blocker, I no longer get) — I have even clicked on some of those Google ads.

    A site i was on recently stopped me from accessing one of their pages because of popup blocking. I had to allow them to go to the page.

    you could do something like that if you really wanted a popup, although im sure most people would just leave your website.

    Yeah, true they would, and I am not useing the popup to advertise to someone, it pops under the browser, so they don't even know. If you want to see a popup bypass your blocker, then go here. This is the site I have seen it on, and a few others.

    Edit:

    Your right, firfox block the popups, but take a look at this.

    MSIE: 83.77 % (107115)
    Netscape: 12.72 % (16269)

    83% of my visitors use Internet Explorer anyway, so browse the above site, with a google toolbar blocker, and you will still get the popups showing.

    Thx

    Some sites are excusable, like gaming sites when opening up the games. They're only for fully-equipped browsers ANYWAYS, so that's ok if js-disabled browsers can't view it. A <noscript> message'd be neccesarry, but other than that, they're pointless, frustrating, and annoying. I truly beleive pop ups are at least partly responsible for 50% of heart attacks.

    Message:

    Don't use pop ups unless you REALLY, REALLY don't like old people.

    It didn't bypass my blocker, I use Norton Internet Security and it blocks all popups and most banner ads. Those that don't automatically get blocked, I can add to the list But I got no popup at all, and I'm using IE at the moment too...
