AdGuard blocking not working on CNBC.com

Hi,

On my iPad, I blocked a top banner element. AdGuard generated the following code:

cnbc.com###MainContentContainer > div:last-child > div.homepage.PageBuilder-page > div.PageBuilder-pageWrapper > div.PageBuilder-containerWidth100.PageBuilder-pageRow:nth-child(2) > div.PageBuilder-col-full.PageBuilder-col > div.TopBanner-container

It seems to have the desired effect, but when I apply it, exit preview and reload the page it doesn’t work.

Can anyone please help with this?

thanks.

Thanks.

First shot shows how the site loads by default. I’ve circled the blank area at the top that I’m trying to get rid of.

Second shot shows the effect of the code in my original post - it removes the blank area. For some reason, when I apply that code and reload the page, it doesn’t work (blank space returns).

Hi. On my end this rule from Base filter blocks that element
Code:
cnbc.com##.TopBanner-container

Odd. Perhaps it’s not taking effect. Is there some way I can force AdGuard to load new rules?

Arrrgh! No, still not working.

The only thing I can think of is my set of enabled filter lists is different from yours - do those override these rules?

Tried it - no dice.

I have just Base + AG Annoyances enabled.

Here’s a screenshot of my rules…. Any ideas welcome. I’m not sure why it isn’t working. It works temporarily when I first block the element, but then stops when the page is reloaded.

Settings -> General -> Advanced Settings -> Content blockers

Is it maybe showing a warning you exceed 50k rules?

Also cannot reproduce on my iPad.

Unrelated, but to get rule count down a bit:

Please disable EasyList (already included in Base filter). Peter Lowe's Blocklist is known to cause overblocking, so I suggest to disable that one too.

Thanks. Made the adjustments. Had no impact on CNBC.com, but good to know the filtering is more efficient now.

I’m stupid. Had CNBC in my allow list, hence the filters weren’t working. Took it out and everything is good. Thanks for your help.
