How do I turn off just *part* of the Brave shields for a specific site?

I can’t find any way to turn off shields for just one or two elements on a particular site. Am I missing something?

I have sites where I need access to their chat support features, and want to always see them, but I want to continue blocking everything else that Brave blocks by default.

This is super easy in Ghostery, which I use in other browsers, which shows an on/off toggle for every element blocked. In Brave, I can find a list of blocked URLs under “cross-site trackers blocked,” but that’s it, and there’s no way to act on them.

I believe we have this functionality planned for future releases, but unfortunately I don’t have an exact date for you at this time. Once this issue is resolved:

You should be able to add site exceptions to your filter lists in brave://adblock for the page elements you wish to whitelist.

Thanks for the 411. I’ll keep an eye out for such an update. Would be great if the process could eventually be more user-friendly, i.e., showing the elements blocked by name (instead of URL) in the Shields overlay when you “unfold” each section to see what’s blocked, with on/off toggles for each element.

Basically, I think Brave’s shields are great, but I wish they had the layman’s fine-tuning available in Ghostery.
