Export/import for the whitelist

I have pretty many pages whitelisted. You should be able to export them as well.

Also, the export is not working for the user filters. It opens the filters in a new tab, but if you save it, it contains just code (and script tags). A textbox for copy and pasting would be better I assume.

Good idea!

I've got something to add to this one too, since it's related. I noticed if I import my Adguard user filters into the extension, any whitelist entries are added to the blocklist as-is and not imported automatically to the whitelist instead.

Having a quick look at the extension i have to agree saving the filters as a txt file would be better than a new tab.

As for splitting whitelist entries from from the imported filter list i dont think the extension would be able to do that, but then ive never looked into this stuff, though if whitelists added to the filter list also worked then that would fix that issue if it was possible?

Have to admit from the 5minute look of the extension it looked pretty nice!

I think it would be strange. Image you adding rule to user filter and then it's gone and appeared in whitelist.

That sucks.

Also, what Boo Berry is saying is.

If i whitelisted 50 websites in the application and then used another computer and installed the extension and imported my list of sites i would have to manually add them 50 exceptions, is it not possible for the extension to add them whitelists automatically? Or will the user have to extract them and make a second text file and import it into the whitelist?

Without knowing what can and can not be done i dont if you are forced to use two text files (blocked / white list) or can somehow combine the code to one text file and extract to the right areas.

We'll add whitelist export in the next version. I think exporting them separately is better because these sections are separate in extension's settings.

And it'll import whitelist entries from the application export file? Meaning, it'll only import the whitelist rules and nothing else in this case?

Only whitelist.

Whitelist export/import will be just a list of domains
User filter export/import -- list of rules
