When visiting the Aurora starter store home page, it might appear that many of the elements and e-Marketing spots are missing, and only the header, "New This Week" widget (ProductRecommendation.jsp) and footer are displayed.
The assets used for these e-Marketing spots are stored in a directory that contains "advertisements" in the path. This can cause them to be filtered out and not displayed if an ad-blocking extension is being used within the browser.
Resolving the problem
To ensure this is not an issue, disable any ad-blocking browser extensions and refresh the page. Moving the images into a directory that does not contain "advertisements" in the path might also work around the ad-blocker filters.
