Update (2014/04/01): This doesn’t seem to work anymore, check out this updated post, or see comments….
I’m not a big fan of advertisements. I’m also not a big fan of paywalls. Seeing as I do want companies to make money from their content, I’m a horrible person for finding ways around both these things. I’m worse because I’m sharing.
AdBlock for Google Chrome does a great job at removing ads from everything. However, the Onion paywall is still a problem. I’m also worried about how Canadian newspapers are about to begin paywalls. I had a workaround to The Onion’s paywall, that worked well, until a few months ago. With some Googling I finally found a solution. Once AdBlock is installed, click on the Adblock icon and choose Options. Click Customize, and click edit beside the manual section. Paste the following in and save.
Hey I really appreciate you posting this! It’s really helpful. Onion needs to find a different way to monetize their site. Paywalling is bullshit.
Hey, thank you for this, very much appreciated. It worked beautifully.
This isn’t working. Has something changed?
You’re right Warren,
