[SOLVED] What if blocked application/ ?

I block all sites except a few so I was wondering if I blocked application/ instead of specific ones for e.g. one for PDF, other for torrents, is it going to affect the few whitelisted sites I have?

Re: [SOLVED] What if blocked application/ ?

Here is how I tested this.

I went to a random site with a pdf that I have never been to before: pdf995.com/samples/pdf.pdf

The pdf loaded because Pluckeye does not block them by default.

Then I added the rule:

pluck add "Deny application/pdf"

When I reloaded the page, the pdf was blocked and would not load.

Then I clicked the Pluckeye "Allow" button, and the pdf loaded again.

So if you use the "Deny application/mime-type" syntax, it appears that these formats WILL be available on sites you have specifically allowed.

Re: [SOLVED] What if blocked application/ ?

he above worked for me but now I decided that I want to go back and allow pdf downloads.
I added the rule:

pluck add "Allow application/pdf"

However, pdfs remain unable to download.. any suggestions?

We have to remove Deny and Block rules. When both allow and deny exist, the more restrictive rule wins.

pluck del "Deny application/pdf"
