    I've been using the app SelfControl for a long while and really like it. However, I need to block specific parts of a website and then it doesn't work any longer. I've tried a few different methods but all of them seem to have the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    I don't know of any program that allows blocking specific sections of a site. Why do you need such control? Kids?

    You can put an entry into your hosts file which will block sites.

    That will prevent the computer from getting to google and will instead return nothing.

    Unfortunately, no. I'm simply trying to remove every temptation to procrastinate.

    Thanks, but this will block the whole domain and not a specific URL.

    The above can be used to block entire websites, not specific locations within a website, which is what the OP wants to do.
