The file pointed at by the variable
forbiddenFile (defaults to
~/.polipo-forbidden or /etc/polipo/forbidden, whichever
exists) specifies the set of URLs that should never be fetched. If
forbiddenFile is a directory, it will be recursively searched
for files with forbidden URLs.
Every line in a file listing forbidden URLs can either be a domain name — a string that doesn’t contain any of ‘/’, ‘*’ or ‘\’ —, or a POSIX extended regular expression. Blank lines are ignored, as are those that start with a hash sign ‘#’.
By default, whenever it attempts to fetch a forbidden URL, the browser will receive a 403 forbidden error from Polipo. Some users prefer to have the browser display a different page or an image.
forbiddenUrl is not null, it should represent a URL to which
all forbidden URLs will be redirected. The kind of redirection used
is specified by
forbiddenRedirectCode; if this is 302 (the
default) the redirection will be marked as temporary, if 301 it will
be a permanent one.
