intercepting muching at the right place

Postby dickybilly » Tue Dec 18, 2007 5:00 pm

Hi....
I'm a newbie to AM...

I'm finding for a URL w/embedded javascript (the URL is in a javascript pulldown menu) that AM has changed the fetch to say
http://www.WEBSITE.com/entry.asp?AdMcha=closed

from
http://www.WEBSITE.com/entry.asp?status=closed
which causes the wrong webpage to be loaded.

when I manually change admcha to status and reload the correct webpage loads.

I don't know how to prevent AM from making the change from ?status=closed

Can you help me set the proper custom filter to assure that /status=closed doesn't get changed

thanks in advance,
Dick

No filtering on http://www.WEBSITE.com/entry.asp should work?

Indeed, adding a no filtering entry on the relevant page should do the trick.

This is happening because the current Ad Muncher's context sensitivity in scripts isn't as good as it could be. It will be vastly improved for v4.8, so this shouldn't be a problem at that point.

thanks for the quick replies....
what you've suggested is exactly what I've tried and it doesn't work.
by the time I'm on the webpage where the pull down j-script menu is its been munched
note: I've cleared cache of the browser

the url continues to display
http://www.WEBSITE.com/entry.asp?AdMcha=closed

only now with no filtering ALL the ads on the webpage show

We'll need the URL to investigate further - the affected code might be in an external script, iframe, or other embedded content that isn't hosted on the main URL. Also, what have you tried using as they "keyword" in your no filtering entry?

the URL in question (you might have to register first to login)
http://kissextra.1061kissfm.com/sweepstakes.asp
middle pull down menu "use points"
choose "sweepstakes"
then choose "closed"
which when correct should bring up the URL: http://kissextra.1061kissfm.com/sweepst ... tus=closed
note: if you manually bring up the URL above you'll see the correct fetch
but instead brings up the URL (and wrong info): http://kissextra.1061kissfm.com/sweepst ... cha=closed
the munched URL brings up the default "current" webpage

thanks,

Indeed the script in question was hosted on another domain. To restore the site to working order, simply add:

No filtering on URL: //library.listenernetwork.com

This problem should be fixed for v4.8, please let me know if you encounter any further problems.
