what is the format for 'custom ads block list'

  • Hi,

    Opera has now feature to block ads and you can add own block list in settings panel. But how the file should looks like? I am trying to use the adblockplus syntex ( and it is not working. Here is how my file looks like: iframe*.content-list iframe*.page-element

    but not working. How to fix it? Thx.

  • It uses easylist format AFAIK.

  • but as I can see the format is the same. So What is wrong with my file?

  • Is there any update on an official way to do these block lists? I see there is now a validator that checks the format of your block list when you add it. Mine was invalid until I put the following header in the text file:

    [Adblock Plus 2.0]

    Even after doing this all my rules that work fine in uBlock Origin seem to have no effect when used in Opera's built-in blocker. My understanding is that both use the easylist format.
