This help doc describes how to set up importers. https://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/applications/editorial/syndication/tasks/article_1cbb3500-da4f-11e5-89c1-e701d3019127.html If you have questions, reach out to our customer service team and they can help guide you through setting up / changing the existing importer.

All PR Newswire content gets assigned to a specific set of section tags under Partners -> PR_Newswire. You can adjust your importer to exclude those section tags, or build an importer to import just the content exchange sections you want to import.

Would having an API to add/edit candidates and races be enough? Then you could build your own data ingesters and update the blox assets with the new information programmatically.

Kevin, after looking a bit more, that is actually a bit of overreach on our move to reduce privacy data on users that is exposed. The intent was for this to remain for admin users. This change happened with Flex 3.145. I'm going to look into having it restored for admin users.

Kevin, I checked around a few other sites and still see them elsewhere, so it's not a Blox thing. We did recently remove them from regular user dashboards to help reduce privacy issues, but they still exist for staff. Go ahead and submit a ticket to address this, I'll keep poking around to see what would disable it.

Just to update this, there is no way to exclude ads based on keywords in the Blox Ad Manager, nor will that be supported. Your best option to do this is to move to Google Ad Manager.

I'm investigating if there is an existing way to do this with Blox Ad Manager. There is a help article that is basically the opposite of what you are wanting: https://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/applications/marketplace/banner_ads/faq/article_1e0be62c-2bed-11e5-9138-f79b54ba56d3.html. I'll update when I learn more about what's happening under the hood.

In the meantime, I highly recommend exploring moving to Google Ad Manager, as it offers a much greater degree of control and behavior than our ad manager. Our Ad Ops team is available to help guide you through the conversion.

It would be possible to do this with keywords on the article and a keyword filter in Google Ad Manager, but you'd have to carefully coordinate that between editorial and whoever is booking the ads. You'll also need to be using Google Ad Manager for this. You could submit a customer service ticket to our Ad Ops team for more information on how you could do this.

You could accomplish this by setting up a section tag channel in Blox Notifier. https://help.bloxcms.com/knowledge-base/releases/software_releases/article_3cbfbd8a-a89f-5ac0-ad3c-1a37108b5ac8.html

This would then allow users to subscribe to specific channels like "news" "sports" "breaking" etc.

Please submit a ticket to our customer service staff so they can take a look. There have been no syndication changes in TCMS lately that would apply.
