Possibly adblocker related? Using Ublock Origin I get several warnings I need to allow blocked items for the link to work.

As above, but if you want to go there directly try this link to AliExpress.

really weird - did a bit of checking things out

 

laptop 01 >> Old -circa 8 weeks ago win 10 build with "clean access" didn't work
laptop 02 >> updated win 10 with "clean access" works
both above are IE/edge current/respective versions

 

On pi-hole server -I updated (firmware/os/pihole package) server and reboot the pi.
on windows and android devices link to aliexpress doesn't work.
if pi-hole is disabled and end devices are rebooted (dns flush?) it will then work.

 

is there a white list referral link available?
