I was wondering about some use cases that I couldn’t figure out. Some are described in the FAQ, in GitHub issues or in the forum, but nothing seems to work as I would expect it. I assume that this is because of differences in v4 and v5, but as I’m not sure, I thought I’d better ask here.
I’m running Blokada 5.10.1 on Android 11.
Manual blocking of hostnames and domains
- The only way I’ve found to block whatever, is to go to “Activity”, touch the entry in question and select “Add to Blocked”.
- There seems to be no way to block anything else but already resolved host names, especially not domains.
- In “Advanced” and “My blocklists”, the only thing I can do is removing entries, but not edit them.
Same is true for everything allow-list related.
Touch and hold, as suggested in How to manually block or allow additional domains, doesn’t work.
The wording in Can I add my own blocklist file? and “How to create your own Host list” suggests that it would be possible to add own block lists (in 5.10.1). However, I can’t find an option to manually add block lists anywhere.
Am I just missing something here or is this just not possible (yet) in v5?
Also, not sure whether this was possible or would be classified as a feature request: can I see which block list contained a blocked domain? If so, how? If not, what is the proper way to file this feature request?
