Blocking pics with no file extension

Post by Wr2r » Fri Jul 09, 2010 7:43 am

Some pics from random links do not have a file extension at the end of its URL.

Is it possible to enhance the current adblocker to cover such pics also?

I entered the supplied link into Avant and was redirected to the image. The URL of that particular image is: http://silverain.hp.infoseek.co.jp/logo/logo001.png It was shown in the address bar once redirected. Therefore I could try to block:

Code: Select all

http://silverain.hp.infoseek.co.jp/logo/*.png
