[RESOLVED] Ways of entering site in whitelist

Post by Visitor » Thu May 13, 2021 5:41 am

There's one thing about the whitelist I can't figure out. Some of the default sites appear like this:
subdomain.domain.com
whereas when I enter a site with subdomain specified I get
...subdomain.domain.com

I get that results of the first sort can come from clicking the NoScript menu, but how do I enter them manually? Thanks.

Can you please share the actual entries (one for each case should do)?

Some of this can depend on whether the permission is for HTTPS only (green lock) or any protocol (red unlock).

I was ready to upload two images but the option doesn't exist here, so I'll just explain.

The default whitelist contains entries such as:
ajax.aspnetcdn.com
where "ajax" is NOT boldface but the rest is.
I imagine that means ajax.aspnetcdn.com is trusted, but xyz.aspnetcdn.com is not?
How would I create such an entry manually?

I'd like to set up something like that for s3.amazonaws.com, but when I type that in myself I get:
...s3.amazonaws.com
where the entire entry is boldface.
I imagine that means something slightly different from the above, but am not sure exactly how?

(In each case the entry is set up as Trusted, and https only.)

Unlike aspnetcdn.com, amazonaws.com is TLD like .com or .co.uk (search "public suffix" for more info).

Thanks, I think I understand what that means, but amazonaws is not a special case, just the one I mentioned. Every entry with a subdomain that I typed in myself winds up the same way:
...maps.googleapis.com
...phrases.org.uk
...state.co.us
...translate.googleapis.com
...whittard.co.uk
instead of
maps.googleapis.com
etc

googleapis.com, org.uk, co.us, and co.uk are also considered TLDs. You can see the full list of eTLDs at https://publicsuffix.org/list/

OK, then that is the full answer to my question after all. Thank you!
