@Alex302 @seanl I see that the issue above is not resolved as it wasn't earlier either. Please tell me the reason and I'd be happy to oblige. These are blank ads with constantly moving animation that are even more distracting than ads I think these should be blocked/hidden.

Blank ads at the top and bottom of photogalleries on http://m.photos.timesofindia.com.
Code:
m.photos.timesofindia.com##div[class$=AdCode]
@seanl @Alex302 Please look into this issue it still hasn't been resolved.

There are blank ads in between photogalleries as well.

It is possible to remove the element with a JS rule so that browsers do not try to download the image, but it won't be applied to iOS anyway.

Added to English filter:
Code:
timesofindia.indiatimes.com##style[type="text/css"] + div[class]:not([id]):not([style]):not([class*=" "])
||indiatimes.com/toiitpic/
Please, check the result.
They are using different URLs for the mobile site http://m.timesofindia.com.

These images on the mobile site can be blocked by:
Code:
||timesofindia.com/toimga/
timesofindia.com##style[type="text/css"] + div[class]:not([id]):not([style]):not([class*=" "])

Does not seem to be working on iOS.

Error URL: http://m.timesofindia.com

I tested another filter by adding it to "User Filter" in Adguard Content Blocker on iOS (this filter works):
Code:
timesofindia.com##.itimesshopwgt
@seanl As reported above the filter added for the shopping widget (https://forum.adguard.com/index.php?threads/resolved-m-timesofindia-com-missed-ads-ios.20287/#post-130486) on the mobile site is not working. Please issue an update.

Also ad left-overs at the right side:
Code:
timesofindia.indiatimes.com##.atfAdsLoading
timesofindia.indiatimes.com###c_articlelist_stories_2 > ul.clearfix[data-msid] > li:not([data-msid])

timesofindia.indiatimes.com##div[class^="news-list"] > .news_card[-ext-has='script:contains(typeof canRun)']

@Blaz Thanks, the above filters work.

Another issue I noticed was that this filter in the English filter list causes some legitimate elements to be hidden on the above page:
Code:
timesofindia.indiatimes.com##style[type="text/css"] + div[class]:not([id]):not([style]):not([class*=" "])
This element is hidden in the sidebar on the above page: https://i.imgur.com/svRCF9e.png.

Edit: They seem to be using an inline-script for displaying the above ad but I can't pinpoint it exactly.

Update: These seem to be the same ads as "Recommended by Colombia" can be hidden by:
Code:
timesofindia.indiatimes.com###s_rhs
