How to Turn Off Lancaster New Era Obit Paywall

A tipster to my blog discovered an easy way to get around the Press+ paywall, which recently launched on the Lancaster Online obits page: Turn off JavaScript.

I tested this on several browsers yesterday, and sure enough. It works.

This morning, David Brauer of MinnPost received a reply from LancasterOnline. Basically, they’re not worried. Obit readers and the tech savvy do not meet in their Venn diagram of online readership.

While this may be true, anyone who plans to use Press+ to make money should be aware of the easy methods for circumventing the tool that’s meant to bring in extra revenue and take into account what kind of hit your profit plans could take, should people get the hang of changing a setting or applying a script.
