Most of our tests now let you exclude specific web addresses. For example, you could now exclude all pages inside example.com/demo from your spelling test, without affecting other tests.

How to exclude pages from a given test

  • Visit the test you want to exclude pages from
  • Click Settings > Test settings
  • In the Excluded page URLs box, enter the fully qualified URLs that you want to exclude, one on each line, e.g.

  • Note that these URLs must be full URLs, i.e. you can’t just write example.com or /blog. Any web addresses inside these URLs are also excluded, so in the above example the pageĀ http://example.com/blog/article would also be excluded by http://example.com/blog.
  • Re-run the report for your settings to take effect.

If you want to exclude pages from all tests, you should instead go to Settings > Site settings and add your web addresses to the Denied URLs box instead.
