Why Adtoniq updates your JavaScript

Adtoniq’s servers securely contact your WordPress server on a regular basis to update the JavaScript that is used for ad block detection and analytics. Think of this like an update for your virus scanner, except that it’s to ensure the continued operation of Adtoniq. This happens automatically as needed.

You can view the last date and time at which your JavaScript was updated inside the Adtoniq WordPress plugin admin screen. If for some reason your server was off line or otherwise unavailable for an update, you can force an update by clicking the force update button. Normally you will not need to use this feature.

Because JavaScript updating happens asynchronously with respect to the WordPress administration page, you may sometimes see an indication that a JavaScript update is pending, and that you should refresh your page to see changes. If you see this message, you should refresh your browser page to see if your website has received the latest JavaScript update.

If you cache your HTML pages, you should consider whether you want to update your cache when Adtoniq updates its JavaScript. You do not necessarily need to update your cache, however if a new ad block threat emerges that is fixed in a JavaScript update, those pages may lose their Adtoniq functionality until you update your cache. Contact Adtoniq for ways of automating this process by integrating with your CDN.
