I've done a fair amount of googling and came up with
To Disable the blocker
To Enable the blocker
But it doesn't seem to be effective on Safari version 6.0.5 and the website I found it on was for an older version of OS X. I'm usually pretty darn good at figuring things out but this has me pulling my hair out. Rarely do I seek out help but this time I'm REALLY hoping someone can throw me a rope here.
Any thoughts as to how I can do this so I can script it and push it out?
Thanks in advance.
Are you the nick that replied to my site?
Sorry if so, I need to update that more!
Is this better?
Thanks for the reply! I can't check your site (though I've been there before) from our internal network but I'll have a look at it when I can throw a spare MacBook on our customer wlan.
I ran it like so in terminal:
but above you put the key value to true so do I have to end that line with "TRUE" instead of "YES"?
Also is it supposed to show the "Block pop-up windows" unchecked? I'm running the command with Safari closed of course but when I open it and view Preferences it's still showing the box is checked. Just wondering. Again thanks for your response and help!!
I don't mean to bring up old comments, but i'm trying to run this as a Login/Recurring checkin policy to push out to teacher MacBooks and I can't get it to work. The policy runs, the script runs, and the policy log states below....

what am I doing wrong? I've tried to use SUDO in the script line as well. The script works completely fine when I open terminal directly on the device. Is the script in JSS not writing to the user level like if you were to open terminal?
@aaron.kelley Give this a quick test...
