Ad-blocker disabled but still getting ad-block warnings


You've disabled your ad-blocker on The Sims Resource, or don't even have any ad-blocker installed, but still get warning messages on TSR that you are using and ad-blocker? This problem can happen when there's still something that's blocking (part of) the ads on TSR. You should be able to see this when browsing the site, and notice that no (or only a few) ads are showing up, Below you will find help in trying to find what the cause might be for you.

Anti-virus apps/extensions

Some anti-virus apps also have ad or banner blocking build in them. The banner blocking from Kaspersky is for instance well known for causing problems with the ad-blocker message showing up on TSR. But other anti-virus apps can show a similar problem. Changing the settings for ad/banner blocking in your anti-virus app or add *.thesimsresource.com to the allowed sites in the ad/banner blocking settings of your anti-virus app should in that case solve the problem.

Enable javascript

Make sure you have javascript enabled. Some ads might make use of this, and having javascript disabled could in that case trigger the ad-block message to show up. You can check the javascript status of your browser here: https://www.enable-javascript.com/

Enable cookies

If cookies are disabled in your browser, it can sometimes cause problems with specific ads showing up. If that happens, it can trigger the ad-block message to show up. Enabling cookies in your browser should in that case solve the problem.

Browser settings

Some browsers have build in ad-block settings that can block some of the ads that show up on TSR. For info on how to change those settings take a look at the link for the browser you are using:

* Chrome

* Opera

Other apps/extensions

There can be many apps or browser extensions that have ad blocking features in them. Disable these apps or extensions and then try loading The Sims Resource again with a deep refresh (Ctrl F5).

If you use Firefox as browser, you can make use of Firefox safe mode to find the extension that's causing the problem. More info on how to use Firefox safe mode can be found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode.

Try with a different browser

If the ad-block message is still showing up after trying the above, then also try with a different browser. For some people this seems to fix the problem. The cause is in that case probably a hard to find browser setting or an app/extension that doesn't look like it would do any ad blocking.
