    selectively allowing cookies in Chrome

    I block cookies by default. For some sites, I like to allow them. In the address bar, there is an icon indicating cookies are blocked; "This page was prevented from setting cookies".

    I can click that and select manage. It offers as a hint [*.]example.com which I interpret as (example) allowing me to enter that and get, again for example, good.example.com, bad.example.com and similar. BUT, I cannot figure out how enter the * wildcard and have it accepted.

    Can anyone give me a better example of the needed entry?

    As a comment. costco.com doesn't allow www.costco.com or shopping.costco.com. Id like an entry that does.

    Thanks!

    I tried *.costco.com and with brackets [*.]costco.com (which usually mean optional so the *.costco.com made sense). Chrome tells me my entry "is not a valid web address".

    Puzzled ...

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    I was wrong. Include the brackets.

    [*.]costco.com

    I just did it.
