#3070 closed change (fixed)

Create Adblock Plus on/off switch

There is no possibility to deactivate Adblock Plus yet. On iOS we give users this option in the Adblock Plus settings.

What to change

Create on/off Switch with label "Adblock Plus", which should appear as the first Adblock Plus settings item. Obviously it is turned on by default. If a user deactivates Adblock Plus, all other Adblock Plus setting items should turn in a deactivated mode, so that a user can not click e.g. "More blocking options" after Adblock Plus is deactivated.

Aaron, Lisa, would you mind double checking that this is the text we want? Isn't it "Ad blocking" we want to enable here, rather than "Adblock Plus"? Do we want to position the ad blocking feature within Adblock Browser as "Adblock Plus"?

Could be wrong, but I'm reading this as: we want to give the user the option to completely disable Adblock Plus, without having to uninstall it. Is that what we want to do here?

A screenshot would be helpful for me.

There is no documentation or explanation as to what exactly the wording should be now. So, although I see the feature here, I see no intended behaviour, no text that should be displayed etc, so I am unable to correctly verify this as complete.

You mean the wording Block intrusive elements [checkbox] Block intrusive ads and other elements, such as images, on all websites. ? If so, it was changed in #4760

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed
  • Verified working set
  • 'Block intrusive elements [checkbox] Block intrusive ads and other elements, such as images, on all websites.' is now correctly displayed.
