  1. 19:39 – After adding the custom block-lists you forgot to go to Tools > Update Gravity (or via ssh and entering the "pihole updateGravity" command) to update the lists of blocked domains from all of the configured blocklists.
    The 99,936 figure for "Domains on Adlists" is only from the default blocklist. 🙃
