Pi Hole killing RFD (Affiliated links fix)

ALL links do not work anymore with Pi Hole enabled.........

The worst part is people posting threads without pasting site in post. I cannot use loophole of quote and highlight and open in new tab...........

problem fixed. mainly use google chrome. add on will do what it says.........

I don't think we've changed anything with our links recently. Have you tried whitelisting our website?

There's a specific deal URL field in Hot Deals so it's not a requirement for posters to add the URL to the post body as well.

Have you tried to whitelist our site? I don't use Pi Hole but it seems like it would fix your issue of our links not loading.

whitelisting redflagdeals.com will do nothing as the links are not rfd anymore........ there are at least two sites...........

If a retailer is part of one of our affiliate networks, our system automatically converts links to those sites to affiliate links.

My familiarity with Pi Hole is very basic so unfortunately I can't really offer any suggestions besides trying to whitelist the affiliate urls you happen to come across to see if that helps. Maybe someone else who uses it can chime in with more suggestions.
