I want to enable ads in certain websites, but not globally, create an exception list of some sort for the ad blocker. Is that possible? Without checking and unchecking "block ads" in preferences, of course.
This has been requested several times, but unfortunately it's not currently possible. https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/issues/268 has been reported to add this functionality.
May 2019 edit: this will be possible in Epiphany 3.34 using the security popover that appears when you click the address bar lock icon; various website permissions will be available to change there.
As of Epiphany 3.32 (maybe some earlier post-3.24 versions), you can edit the list of filter files using
So, you should (haven't tested) be able to define a filter file with exceptions according to the AdBlock Plus syntax, upload it somewhere, and put the link in the
You might even be able to get away with dropping a filter file in
~/.cache/epiphany/adblock/ (where filters defined in
adblock-filters are downloaded), not sure.
Since Epiphany 3.24
filters.list file was removed (Thanks to Michael C.). More Info
In the file
, you can set filter lists... one on each line and with
; at the end of each line
So what shoud I write in

@cristianmos Have a look at this guide from Adblock Plus under

2As a disclaimer: I don't use Epiphany. About your question, I have two solutions in mind: First is to use a service like github to upload your filterlist and place it into that file (the url of the raw code/text). And second is to go to the Epiphany website gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/issues and ask directly to that thirdparty app how to do what you want to achieve within their system Dec 29, 2018 at 5:05
filters.listfile was removed in Epiphany 3.24 so you might as well just delete it. (Epiphany really ought to delete it automatically.) See gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/epiphany/commit/…. Dec 29, 2018 at 20:13
