How to add Time limit to websites ?

Hello, I want to add time limits to websites like youtube and other distractions.. For ex I want to allow 10 mins everyday from 10-17 and block from 17-18 and again allow 10 mins from 18-22 and block for the rest of the day.

You'll have to specify those 10 minutes.

For example, if you want YouTube to be allowed from 10:00 to 10:10 and from 18:00 to 18:10 and blocked for the rest of the day -

pluck when 1000-1010&1800-1810 allow youtube.com
pluck block youtube.com

pluck block youtube.com

I think what they want is pluckeye to be able to detect how long they have been on youtube. So they go on youtube for 10 minutes, boom pluckeye detects this and then blocks them from youtube. I think this is what they want.

But I don't think pluckeye can do this?

Yes exactly.
That is an important feature. Specifying exact allow commands is pointless.
If that was there it would be great. But I haven't received any comment.

It is not pointless.

I do not appreciate the complaints.

If someone has to allow youtube.com for 10 mins only like for 1110-1120 is troublesome.
Instead allow youtube.com for 10-15 mins during work time, so if any tutorials are to be watched then is safe.

Re: How to add Time limit to websites ?

See https://forum.pluckeye.net/viewtopic.php?id=1095.
Using Leechblock NG instead of Limit, you might be able to add a time limit for atleast one of the periods you mentioned (10-17 and 18-22), maybe even both. Do let us know how it goes.

Also see Jon's comment on this suggestion: https://pluckeye.uservoice.com/forums/1 … y-eg-1hr-p

You can vote for the limit feature to be implemented in Pluckeye here:
