Hi everyone,
I have the following filter (stolen from a previous thread on this forum):
/[\W\d]ad(server|s|v|x)?[\W\d]/

This has been working very well for me. But by chance it happens to block an image/hyperlink that I don't want to block:
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/images/t1adv.gif

How can I modify the filter to exclude this one particular image from being AdBlocked? (I use this web site a lot so I really only need this one exception).

Thanks!

In the next version of Adblock you'll be able to whitelist images you don't want blocked.

Until it's released, remove the first \d from the filter.
Code:
/\Wad(server|s|v|x)?[\W\d]/

Thanks, that seems to work although now it seems to allow any item with a number preceding the "ad", not just this particular image. I was hoping to be able to modify it to only allow this one exception, even if it makes the filter somewhat unwieldy.

Can't wait for the White List!!!!!

Yes, you are correct. However, I think preceding digits are very rare.

You are right, I removed the \d and have found no new ads. In fact, gmail now works better without it, too!
Thanks!
