    I had maps saved on the classic mapquest. Was going to sign in on the new mapquest, but have no sign in link in any browser. Troubleshooting the issue brought me to change my Open DNS web filtering to no blocks. When I did that, the sign in link showed up. Went back in, turned the filter back on and added mapquest.com to my always allow list. Once again, I have no sign in link. Any help?

    Yes, check your domain stats for any related domains being blocked, and add these to your "never block" list.
    Alternatively analyze the source of the related webpage to find out the domains needed to render it correctly, and whitelist those.

    For example, you need Facebook to login to mapquest...

    These are the domains being queried when visiting the main page and clicking the Sign In link:
    mapquest.com,64.12.89.186
    www.mapquest.com,64.12.99.230
    content.mqcdn.com,77.67.27.41
    sns-static.aolcdn.com,206.222.227.3
    o.aolcdn.com,77.67.27.73
    mtile04.mqcdn.com,77.67.27.72
    coverage.win.mqcdn.com,64.12.99.92
    mtile03.mqcdn.com,77.67.27.50
    mtile01.mqcdn.com,77.67.27.50
    mtile02.mqcdn.com,77.67.27.72
    cdn.mapquest.com,77.67.27.50
    www.facebook.com,69.171.247.21
    passets-cdn.pinterest.com,77.67.27.42
    platform.twitter.com,184.85.159.144

    connect.facebook.net,2.21.63.139
    cdn.api.twitter.com,184.85.159.144

    Just want to make sure that I am reading you correctly, I have to "never block" facebook in order to sign in to mapquest.com? I mean I see the rest of the domains too, just trying to grasp the concept.........
  1.  permalink
    The concept: If you use the FB login for the site, then yes. Like many others, FB has a "universal" login that is used for other sites. "Log in with Google". "Log in with OpenID." "Log in with Yahoo." Etc.

    For mapquest, it looks to me also that the only way to log in is to Connect Using Facebook. So, unless you have some currently unavailable but grandfathered login method, you log in with your FB credentials, so of course some FB domain(s)would need to be allowed.

    Not everything in that list, of course, needs allowance. You'll have to figure out which blocked domains are required. (e.g., pinterest and twitter, unless there is some log in with twitter id method I have yet to detect, and you use a twitter id.)
