Need a filter for golf.com pop up. URL included

Postby Darbre » Sun Dec 23, 2007 2:54 pm

Hi

Golf.com has a pop up that Ad Muncher isn't filtering. The URL is:

http://www.golf.com/golf/tours_news/art ... 21-1697858

I'd appreciate it if someone can come up with a filter for this.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas

Not getting any popup with firefox 2.0.0.11 nor with IE 7. Neither is alerting me that it blocked one either. All I did was load the page, is there another step?

Very strange. It didn't come up again.

I use My Yahoo as my home page. One of the modules that I view is "Golf.com Tour and News". There are 3 stories in this module that rotate from day to day. Is it possible to have a "one time" popup. If so, why would it NOT popup with anyone else when I posted the link?

I know it's Christmas weekend, but honest......I havn't had THAT much eggnog yet! :-) I know I saw a popup!

I got a pop-up the two times I tried the link out, the pop-up was for a survery for Golf Magazine, pretty annoying.

I use IE 6 XP SP2.

I've recreated the pop-up on Firefox 2.0.0.11, IE 7 and Opera 9.25. You have to load the page then wait a few seconds; what you see will appear as follows:

It's easy: go to the "my filters" tab and click "new". Put "golf_popup" (including the quotation marks) under "keyword/url/text". Then choose "remove divs/spans with text" from the filter category drop-down list.
