[chrome] Whitelisting sites globally

Postby svogelsong » Wed Nov 11, 2015 7:33 pm

Hi

How do we configure a white list for Adblock Plus within the Google apps for education site where we push the app out> When I go to the app to mange I thought there would be options to white list sites globally but there is not.

Hi

That is per machine they can do that but I'm talking from the Google management console I want to as an administrator white list sites that we are having trouble with pages being blocked that shouldn't and I want to push that list out to all 1700 Chroembooks in our organizational unit.

You could add on all those systems a new (custom) list hosted on some server (dropbox for example).
When you want to whitelist a site simply add a new rule to that list, so all the systems will "see" it.

rules like:
@@||example.com^$document

The custom list should have a header like easylist for example:
https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/easylist.txt

Code: Select all
[Adblock Plus 2.0]
! Title: Education list
! Last modified: 11 Nov 2015 17:50 UTC
! Expires: 4 days (update frequency)
! Homepage: https://server.com

Great! Not knowing any of the syntax if I wanted to simply allow the site myaccess.com what would that look like? I don;t know what the @@ and so on mean. And in the header the update frequency of 4 days what does that do?

@@ means whitelisting an element / page / whatever
@@||myaccess.com^$document

frequency would be the interval ABP download again that list
