Adding Whitelist Entries, To Adblock Add-Ons

Ad blockers are popular Chrome add-ons, which let us manage various websites abilities to serve ads in our browsers.

Many ad blockers include a script blocker. Like NoScript in Firefox, ad blockers may interfere with various Blogger features - such as the "Don't track" script, in the dashboard.

If you publish a Blogger blog, and you have a problem with any pages in the Blogger dashboard, you will want to whitelist "blogger.com" in your ad blocker.

You will do better if you not whitelist "blogspot.com". BlogSpot includes many Blogger blogs - and third party code on those blogs. If you are not very picky about what Blogger blogs you view, you won't do well permitting scripts on every Blogger blog.

Adblock Plus is an extension, in Chrome.

I use "Adblock Plus" as an ad blocker, on my Chrome installations. "Adblock Plus" installs as an app, or an extension.


There are several ad blockers available, for Chrome.



I use the "Adblock Plus" extension, in my Chrome installations.


Start with "More tools" - Extensions.




Select "Options" for "Adblock Plus".




Adblock Plus "options" are also accessible from the browser toolbar. Right click on the ABP icon, and select "Options".




Select the "Whitelisted domains" tab.




Let's whitelist "addthis.com".




Paste / type "addthis.com" into the box. Hit "Add domain".




And now, "addhis.com" is whitelisted.



And having whitelisted "addthis.com", I can support a useful third party social sharing blog accessory, by permitting ads that they host.



Some #Blogger blog owners use ad blockers in their browsers - and see problems with using various Blogger features. The Stats "Don't track", for instance, is vulnerable to ad blockers, and similar filters.

Fortunately, it's not difficult to whitelist "blogger.com" in your adblocker.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
http://www.pkblogs.com/bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com/

And an additional URL, to provide to those suffering from this problem, would be the WordPress version of this post:
