Onion Paywall version 2.0

It seems 99% of the visitors to my blog are looking for ways to get around the Onion paywall. I posted about it a while ago in this post.

Turns out it has changed. Here’s the updated instructions…

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.

theonion.com##div[style*=”background-image”][style*=”width: 100%”]

##img[src=”http://s.ppjol.net/static/fb/fancy_close.png”]
##a[id=”gregbox-signInTab”]
##div[id=”gregbox-outer”]
www.theonion.com##IFRAME[id=”ppUI”][src=”https://ui.ppjol.com/lightbox/lightbox_ui.html?start”]
www.theonion.com##DIV[id=”pressplusOverlay”]

This also resolves an issue I had with Tumblr and “background-image” where it would prevent your browser from rendering Tumblr correctly.
