I start like this -
Code: Select all
forums.informaction.com * * block
forums.informaction.com 1st-party * allow
... then allow individual 3rd-party sites as needed, as narrowly as feasible.
Code: Select all
forums.informaction.com i.psyche.me image allow
forums.informaction.com tinypic.com image allow
Result of the above rules -
(allow images from googleusercontent.com to view)
I'm afraid this is dragging out. Perhaps you weren't sure what you were getting yourself into when all this began, I do appreciate the ongoing help with this. But some additional questions (what else is new
) Hope this doesn't get too confusing. I'm already pretty confused.
First. a screenshot of my current uM for this topic. I did have one that showed googleusercontent, but that's not showing in the current one that shows tinypic.
EDIT: Sorry, no screenshot.
No idea why, but keep getting upload failed from tinypic now, so can't include that screenshot. At first I thought it was due to a pixel from solvemedia being blocked by uM, but even after reluctantly allowing it, it still keeps failing. Just disabled uM temporarily and still keeps happening, so must be something at their end.
Nowhere am I seeing anything i.psyche.me (an image which you are allowing) or psyche.me. When I google i.psyche.me, I'm getting a site from which to upload smileys (doesn't seem right, but is that where informaction gets its basic roster of smileys, and is that why it's showing for you--or did someone else in this thread use one from there, and if so, why am I not seeing that url for an image?), and when I google psyche.me I get some kind of hosting svc. or domain name sales site. So no idea where either of these is coming from.
But most important, since we were most recently discussing limiting or controlling content >from or to<, how did you decide to allow the image from i.psyche.me, or any third party image, for that matter?
Also, not for informaction specifically, but in general, NoScript will show any number of third party scripts to temporarily or permanently allow or not. So if you recommend letting NS do the script blocking, how do you go about letting NS take care of that job, when uM is showing a number of third party scripts? How do you know what to allow or not? From what I gather now...I think...maybe...if uM blocks a third party script, it will prevent NS from allowing it.
