Feature request: _global_ URL exclusion

Post by ataraxia » 14 Jul 2020, 15:53

Would be great to have one place to enter all URL's to be excluded from searches.

That way, each time my anti-malware program identifies an "undesireable" site, I can add the URL to a centralized master exclusion list. Then it will be applied to all of my future searches for all sites.

Thanks.

(BTW, Great program!!)

There is such place in the program and it's called "default search project". After you create a search with all your excluded URLs open the search properties and click the big button at the very bottom of the properties window which says [ Make these properties default for all searches... ].

This will save all the settings you choose (along with Excluded URL filters) and use them for every new search you create.

Not quite...

The default screen applies only to NEW searches.

Changes to the default do not change EXISTING searches.

I.e. If I add XYZ.com to the exclusion list in, say, the 77th search item in my list and set it as the default, it does not show up in my #8 search or any of the other ones already there.

(Unless I am missing something???)

thanks

Yes, you're right. Only for new searches.
