Adbusters

What does this plugin do?

Most ad networks expect to find “iframe buster” files in the root of the site. These are often used to allow certain types of rich media creatives to work; for example, full-screen takeovers. On WordPress.com VIP and other multisite installs, it isn’t always possible to add files into the root directory of a site.

This plugin is a package of the most popular iframe busters that have been reviewed for security for the WordPress.com VIP team. Activate the plugin, and it will intercept and handle all requests for the supported iframe busters.

How do I set it up?

Once you’ve activated the plugin, it will work automatically. Easy as that!

Contributions

If you would like Adbusters to handle a new network or iframe buster file, please create a pull request on GitHub (or open a support ticket with WordPress.com VIP), and we’ll be happy to add it to the plugin after doing a short security review.

If you want Adbusters to not handle a particular network’s iframe buster, we provide a wpcom_vip_maybe_load_ad_busters filter that your developers can easily use to do this.
