Make a "study mode" for Pluckeye?

Hey guys.

I am looking for a way to create sort of a "study mode" for Pluckeye.
Usually I go to my study hall every monday-friday from 8-15 (8am-3pm), then 8-12 on saturdays.
What I would like is to block everything except for a few selected sites needed for studying in these periods of time.
Also, I need to be able to turn it off again so it will not interfeer with two coming exams.

It may sound a little stupid to have to block EVERYTHING in order to concentrate on studying, but I suffer from ADHD and I'm studying for an exam in tax law - imagine how boring tax law is to a normal person, now add ADHD...

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question that is already answered in the FAQ/user manual, but I looked and searched the forum and couldn't find an answer.
I'm on v0.99.52 on Mac.

Thanks in advance, and thanks for the great program; I really enjoy it!

Edit: my Pluckeye settings right now are actually pretty good, meaning that they block all too-disctracting sites. So I guess I could block everything in the above mentioned time period and keep my allowed sites, right? My allowed sites are mostly just university stuff anyway.

If you use a when rule with the block command, it should give you the conditions in your edit...everything is blocked except for your allowed sites.

pluck + when 0800-1500 block

If you need to block some of the other sites during that time, change their allow rules to outside of your study hall times.

pluck + when "0000-0800&1500-2400" allow sports.myschool.edu

Thank you very much. Then when I want to turn it off in two weeks time for my exams, what would the command  be? "Pluck rm when 0900-1500 block" or something like that?

Yes. You basically replace the '+' with a '-' or 'rm' or 'del'.
