Anti-AdBlock

Description

This plugin detects if a regular visitor to your blog (10 visits by default)
has AdBlock software enabled. If so, it will display a floating notification
message on the 11th visit to your visitor. You can set this message to humbly
ask your loyal visitor to support your blog by turning off their AdBlock
software, by making a small donation, or by writing about your blog (be
creative!). By default, this message box will never show up again for that
visitor.

Features

  • Ability to make the notification message closeable or not.
  • Ability to NOT display message to visitor until X visits (default 10).
  • Ability to set the number of times your visitor gets nagged by the
    notification. (default 1)
  • Customizable notification message. You can even Rick Roll your visitos who
    have AdBlock enabled!
  • Optional “message bar” mode to be less visitor intrusive.

Screenshots
