Full Version: Dealing with large number of banned webpages
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Currently the lists, plans, etc. do not make it handy to ban large number of websites.

At this point, I want to ban every single website that I find distracting, this currently include a number of websites in the hundreds, and will possibly reach a number in the low thousands (over several years).

But of course, I want to be able to search and manipulate that list, for example to unban a site that was not distracting in the end.

Suggestions:

1) Enable alphabetical ordering of banned websites.
2) Enable easier scrolling down/searching, etc. of banned websites.
Hey PRR!

Your suggestions are duly noted. You can also use whitelist and just allow the websites that you would like to use. Smile
Hi alejandro,

White-list would not work very well for me at this point.  I often want to be able to search information on google, and I don't know on which website I will end up.  But I want to avoid anything related to news, games, social networks.  The number of gaming websites, news-websites is very high. So it means banning hundreds of pages.
Yeah that would be tiresome to load everything into 1 plan. Have you tried using RegEx with FocusMe?

Yes, I do use some regular expressions. I like the feature.  I have banned a few keywords.

But, regular expressions do not cover everything I want.
Great to hear you are using it. Smile It's a big help for banning unknown websites.
