    Safari preference for content blockers set to "Off' for certain websites. Websites still says "Please turn off your AdBlockers". It's annoying. What is wrong?

    For me, what is wrong, is going to a site that wants me to turn my ad blocker off

    Perhaps try enabling it and disabling it again for the site

    No that doesn't work.
    forbes.com won't even let me in at all.

    I went with Chrome and AdBlock
    Turned it off for the site and went right in

    Did the same for Safari and AdBlock
    Still said adblocker was detected

    I use Chrome all the time myself, so I am not sure what is up with Safari and AdBlock

    Ok, good to know there's a problem with Safari and not me!

    Ok, figured it out. There's an adblock icon to the left of the safari address bar that needs to be clicked and set. It won't work in preferences. But it looks like adblock may become obsolete as so many websites are blocking content until it's turned off.

    Which ad blocker are you using?

    Not every ad blocker is a Safari “content blocker”. Turning that setting off will not work, if the ad blocker you are using isn’t based on Safari’s content blocking APIs.
