does not save a website and time

Hi there, thank you for your product. I have used Procrastinator for a while fairly effectively.
I found that if I uninstall I can get to the websites I had previously blocked.
I have re-installed, but whenever I capture a website and time span and save - there is nothing saved.
Not sure what I am doing wrong.
eg https://www.youtube.com and 1700-1730 - not saved
Regards, Roland

A Hard Mode

it would be interesting to have a setting in this extension that makes it so that the person cannot turn the block off until the time is set or they uninstalled the extension. the android app detox (white background, green lock icon) is very strong and i highly recommend taking some notes from it. No insult or anything. this extension is looking good so far. just downloaded it

add new usefull function

Hi Ben, congratulations by the app Is very useful for me.

I would like to suggest a new function for fast and very more useful. Can do you a button to click and add a URL to block? only a URL not the dns. Example: If i want to block one page (ex: www.facebook.com/zuck and not the www.facebook.com, another example: block only https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blablablabla and not www.youtube.com. I know that is possible pasting the url on the text field of the blocker but if have only a button, is very more fast to do it. Can is possible to save users life doing this!? I hope that you think seriously about. thanks for attention.

anti youtube procrastination

hey how about an app that delays the start of youtube videos for a certain amount of time(e.g. 1,5 minutes ) so the dopamin goes back and you can practice free will again :)

youd be the hero of the whole generation that gets their education from that platform!

Setup issue

Hello. It will be more intuitive if empty time interval will be treated as 0000-2359.

I thought that extension does not work until i read comments here

Exceptions

Would really appreciate being able to add exceptions or use a whitelist, for example I want to be able to exclude music websites as I consider them to be helpful to my productivity rather than against it.

Also, while the interface is nice for adding individual webites or whatever, it's a pain if you already have a list like a url filter list or whatever you want to use. I'd appreciate being able to do a black list and a white list instead of adding each domain individually.

I use this addon because it allows me to use wildcards and block virtually all websites for certain time blocks in the morning and at night. For some reason no other addon I've tried lets me do this on Chrome.

Keep up the good work.

Doesn't work

...at all. I put in the FB, twitter and a game URLs, tried restarting Chrome and it's completely ineffective.

Not saving sites

It doesnt seem to be working...I could not figure out how to add sites. I made a list of them and every time I hit save it told me I didn't have any sites written in!

Sync Preferences using chrome.storage.sync

Unless I have missed something, the list of blocked websites that I have configured in Procrastinator does not sync to my other computers along with the extension.

I would just like to point out to you that you can easily do this via chrome.storage.sync https://developer.chrome.com/trunk/extensions/storage.html#property-sync as noted in the answer on stackoverflow here http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4213882/how-to-sync-chrome-extension-options just in case you didn't know already.

Fantastic, simple but productive extension - thank you!
