[Resolved] WordPress Plugin

Hi there,
The Tracking Protection list (https://filters.adtidy.org/extension/chromium/filters/3.txt) includes an entry to block
/wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/*

The plugin in question uses the normal method for outputting Google Analytics tags, so those tracking requests are already blocked by Adguard correctly (if Tracking protection is enabled) by the list under the standard Google Analytics rules.

However, the unnecessary inclusion of the above rule instead only serves to break the WordPress admin side of the site for administrator users who also happen to use AdGuard with tracking protection enabled, since this rule only serves to block the admin CSS, JS and image files from loading properly for the plugin.

This rule should be removed so that users of the plugin don't themselves need to turn of tracking protection or switch to another ad blocking chrome extension in order to not have their websites break.

Note, it was unclear how to title this following the guidelines since it impacts 2 million websites of the above plugin, not a single website

Hi there,
It breaks the admin area display of reports, the dashboard widget, basically the whole plugin: https://drive.google.com/open?id=13JCI5F7Zqk16NxYYZSO8ds_5L4QuQ7XO

Because as mentioned it's blocking /wp-content/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/* it's blocking all of the admin CSS/JS/Images for the plugin (or at least the images that aren't inlined).

The filter above as mentioned doesn't do anything except break the site, since the plugin uses the normal GA snippet, so the normal AdGuard blocks for blocking the analytics.js file from Google blocks the tracking anyways.
