Allowing Caucus pop-up windows with AdSubtract
Revised 11 December 2002
The popular AdSubtract software blocks pop-up window advertisements. Unfortunately, it also blocks Caucus pop-up windows, such as "Help" or personal information pages (what you see when you click on a person's name).
Tell AdSubtract not to block pop-ups on your Caucus site. Detailed instructions are shown below:
- Determine the hostname of your Caucus site.
Login to Caucus. Look at the address bar in your browser. It should look something like this:
The hostname is the part immediately after the "http://". In this case it is "community.tmn.com".
- Open the AdSubtract control panel.
Double-click on the AdSubtract tray icon in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
- Click on the filters tab.
You should see the window shown on the right.
- Click on the "Add" button.
You'll see the dialog box shown to the right. Click in the box and type your Caucus hostname (e.g. "community.tmn.com").
Then click on "OK".
- Uncheck Annoyances
Back on the filters tab of the control panel, un-check the "Advertisements" and "Pop-up windows" boxes in the "Annoyances" section.
Click on "OK".
- You're Done!
If you're inside Caucus, click on the "refresh" button on your browser.
Now you can use all of the features of Caucus, and still block pop-ups from other sites.
