Adblock Plus for Chromebooks

Postby stephenpottage » Mon Dec 07, 2015 9:23 pm

Good morning,

Is there a quick way for me to add a few rules into Adblock plus and then apply those rules across 500 Chromebooks? I can deploy the extension easily but I'm not aware of any way to push those custom settings to those users/devices.

Maybe someone knows a better way to accomplish what I'm looking for. I want to block a certain element in Google Docs - the Research pane which is in a DIV container.

Thanks in advance for any help / suggestions.

read "large sale deployments" section
viewforum.php?f=21

anyway, you could write your rules on some server and then add that custom subscription to all your devices (I know initially it's some work to do, but then any rule you add will be "seen" by all your users)

see how to create the subscription (especially the header)

Thanks mapx.

I'm a complete newbie. Can you give me the Coles notes on how I could write a simple rule and upload it to Google drive?

Here is the element I want blocked.... docs.google.com##DIV[class="docs-reference-pane-container"]

What type of file do I create? Then I'm assuming I would have to login to every account and point Adblock at the custom rules?

Thanks for considering.

- create your text file, for example (replace server.com with something else, your server etc)
Code: Select all
[Adblock Plus 2.0]
! Title: mylist
! Last modified: 09 Dic 2015 17:50 UTC
! Expires: 4 days (update frequency)
! Homepage: https://server.com
docs.google.com##DIV[class="docs-reference-pane-container"]


- upload it to some server, I can't make it work using google drive, but dropbox seems ok
see the file (view)
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ve00slge1iocb5l/myfile.txt

- it seems to be accepted in this form when you add it to ABP (note this part: ?dl=1 )
Code: Select all
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ve00slge1iocb5l/myfile.txt?dl=1


- create the subscription link:
go to https://adblockplus.org/abp_linkfactory
add some title in Subscription title
put the link in Subscription location ==>
Code: Select all
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ve00slge1iocb5l/myfile.txt?dl=1

click generate ==> you can now directly click "subscribe" button or (in your case) copy the generated code and insert it in some your web page (and then your users will click that subscribe button in your page)

I added this subscription in a page here (sample list):
http://axistrivia.altervista.org/fr_de.html
