Community Weaver will warn you if your Internet browser has an ad or popup blocker which is activated for the Community Weaver timebank site. Community Weaver warns you because:

If you have an activated ad blocker on your computer it will prevent some parts of Community Weaver from functioning.

Why does ad block software or pop-up blocking software cause problems for Community Weaver?

Community Weaver uses terms (ad, service, request, earn, etc) that are often used by advertising pop-ups and it is these terms that trigger the pop-up blockers or ad blockers. To use Community Weaver well, you will need to configure your ad blocker or pop-up blocker so that it is not triggered by Community Weaver. You can disable your ad blocker or pop-up blocker only for the domain name of your timebank, leaving it active for other web sites.

This page gives instructions on how to disable ad blocking software for TimeBanks web sites. It will configure your ad blocker so that only timebanks.org (or yourtimebankname.timebanks.org will be ignored. Your ad blocking software will continue to block ads on other sites.
