Blacklisting/Whitelisting disallowing links with special characters


The newest version of Pi Hole is running perfectly. I seem to have trouble adding specific links that include at least two dashes (--). This was a wonderful feature for blocking some YouTube ad domains. Especially, since we can't use wildcard blocking: source and source.

If I invoke pihole -b

I will get:

::: is not a valid argument or domain name`

Will this be a permanent change? Also, how will Pi Hole interact with domains in the blacklist text file?

Edit: version with this issue: 2.12

What version are you on? We recently released a small update that should fix this.

Just updated to 2.12.1

Can confirm the issue has been resolved.
