Removing Press popup from Marietta Daily Journal Online (www.mdjonline.com)

  1. Download the zip from here.
  2. Open up Google Chrome. If you don’t use it, you should. It’s free!
  3. Click on the wrench (or if you have an updated Chrome version, the 3 lines) on the top right hand corner, and goto Settings
  4. Switch to the Extensions tab.
  5. Unzip the zip you downloaded earlier
  6. Drag mdjonline.user.js to the extensions window
  7. Reload any article on mdjonline.com, and it should be popup free!

This doesn’t hack their servers or anything.. they use 2 divs, one that makes it grey, and one with the popup content. This just automates removing those divs.

UPDATE

You can use this script to remove from any website that uses Press+. Just edit the script before installing it to have the URL of the website. If you know a website that uses it, leave it in the comments, and I’ll update the script to include that site. Until Press+ comes up with a better solution to their problem, I’ll keep exploiting and updating this workaround.

  1. Justin, I tried this for Macon.com yesterday and it seemed to work fine, however, tonight I received the resspass window again. Did something change? Is there an updated script?
