but doesn't do anything. thought it might be pi-hole so tried on a "clean/straight" internet link and get a "hmmm... cannot reach this page"
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.
These links are referral codes
Geekzone broadband switch | Eletricity comparison and switch | Hatch investment (NZ$ 10 bonus if NZ$100 deposited within 30 days) | Sharesies | Mighty Ape | Backblaze | Amazon | My technology disclosure
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?
