Content Blocking

Press Page Down and Page Up to switch slides.

Content blocking is an efficient means of suppressing content within a Web page or site that you do not want to see.

You can block all content that shares the same file path on a server, or you can block single files, or both.

Blocking Content

  1. right-click on the page that has content you want to block and select "Block content". A content block toolbar will be displayed above the page.
  2. Click on the images or plug-in content that you would like Opera to block. By default, anything that shares a server path with what you click on, will be blocked, which means that, for example, all images in the same folder as the one you click on, will be blocked. To block one specific element only, hold Shift while clicking.
  3. When you have finished blocking content, click the "Done" button on the toolbar.

Editing and Unblocking

Should you find that you have blocked too aggressively, and that content you would like to see, has now disappeared, re-enable the content block toolbar and clicked the blocked content to re-enable it, or click the "Details" button to edit the list of blocked content.

You may want to remove some paths from the list of content to block, or simply make the path more specific to avoid too much content being blocked.
