Possible to strip tracking URL from links?


#1

I’m seeing an issue where when clicking on a link in say a marketing email, I’m unable to view the content because pi-hole blocks it.

Which is good, in that I’m not being tracked, but bad in that I wanted to view the content.

Example URL is here: http://click.icptrack.com/icp/relay.php?r=25824912&msgid=1152216&act=QM57&c=144587&destination=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nzoactive.com%2Fau%2Findex.php%2Fproducts%2Fshorts%2F2017dobies-black.html

Is it possible to have pi-hole strip the tracking stuff out and redirect me to

http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nzoactive.com%2Fau%2Findex.php%2Fproducts%2Fshorts%2F2017dobies-black.html

That would be a brilliant feature if it could be reliably implemented.

Cheers!

Mark.

This isn’t something that is done at a DNS level.

For a network wide solution, you’d need some a proxy server for this, to sit between your browser and the internet, intercept all of your traffic, and alter the http requests as they pass.

Ok, cool. Thinking I’ll investigate a browser plugin to achieve same then. Thanks.

PS. Have had the pi-hole disabled for the last few hours. Really noticed the difference in the web experience, so well done you guys. :slight_smile:
