FAQ

Where is the settings page?

The plugin has no settings page, it works without any need to configure it. If you are still seeing some unwanted banners, see below.

A plugin I’m using is still showing banners or notifications!

Clarity works using a visual block list, similar to a browser ad blocker. Plugins have to be added manually.
You can create an issue to ask for a plugin to be supported.
You can also make a GitHub pull requst to the official block list
in that case, add an entry to the definitions.txt file with a CSS selector that hides the notification.

I am a plugin or theme author, how can I avoid being filtered?

Please create an issue and select “Ask for filter removal”.

Generally, your plugin must fulfill the following:
– Your notifications are shown only on an option page that belongs to your plugin, and nowhere else.
– Your notifications are shown only for Administrator role users.
– You have unique CSS classes to make it easy to identify different types of notifications that you use.

When I had yet another plugin promoting their premium plugin in the admin dashboard, I was frustrated. Glad to learn about the Clarity - Ad Blocker plugin from Daniel Schutzsmith's TinyPress newsletter earlier this month. I installed Clarity this week, it works well to remove those annoying ads.

It's great to eliminate all those nags and upsells. Thanks for releasing this as a free plugin!
