I'm using Fedora 14 with privoxy-3.0.16-3.fc14.i686! These sites are blocked by Privoxy:

How can I whitelist these two sites/urls? I want to be able to visit these sites without being blocked (but e.g.: still block the ads on it)

If those pages aren't ads by themselves, they should be whitelisted/marked as not ads like you say.

I'm using Ubuntu, but the configs should be about the same on fedora. The file /etc/privoxy/user.action is meant for your own configurations. Locate the { -filter } line and add your url below it.

I haven't tested it myself, but considering the semantics, it should work

smart idea! but it doesn't work for some reason.. :\ i tried it with the full url (not using http://) and i tried it with only the domain. no luck:\ but thank you!! – LanceBaynes Apr 13 '11 at 21:21
I'm working on this and it's not working for me, either. I think it depends on how it's being blocked. You may need a { -block } block? – Limited Atonement Sep 11 '15 at 22:15
On the other hand, it's been a little while... @LanceBaynes have you figured it out yet? – Limited Atonement Sep 11 '15 at 22:19

add this to your user.action:

{-block -filter}
<your url pattern>
