Personal page for ad-blocking instructions. This is not in the Help: or Wookieepedia: namespaces and will only be linked on request.

Basic stepsEdit

Use a global.css fileEdit

Go to w:Special:Mypage/global.css and replace it with the contents of w:User:Darth_Culator/global.css (or if you already have a global css, append the contents). This code has been spreading like fire across Wikia, so I'm not sure who to credit. Its popularity should be indicative of how well the new ads are being received.

Set your skin back to MonobookEdit

Instructions here.

Advanced stepsEdit

Block ads everywhereEdit

  1. Get Firefox.
  2. Get AdBlock Plus. (Using the development builds is actually quite safe and will provide the most features and blocking efficiency.)
  3. Subscribe to a block list. "EasyList" and "EasyElement" and "ABP Tracking Filter" work in synergy with each other and will generally be all you'll need.

Use a HOSTS fileEdit

For more info, see Wikipedia:Hosts file. Keep in mind that a HOSTS file is not adaptive or intuitive and cannot block ads as effectively as a tool like AdBlock.

The entries listed here are based on observing Wikia ads for a few days. The servers used will eventually diversify and multiply and this list will not be up-to-date.
