    I've been finding that quite a few legitimate websites have been getting blocked recently. coming up as quite random catergories as well.

    Do you host your website with an external hosting provider? If so it is likely you are on a shared or virtualised server and one of the ways that smartfilter uses to filter sites is based on IP addresses. It is likely that a site hosted on the same server as yours is the cuase of the issue. Just tell Smart Computing that your site is being blocked & why and you should find your site unblocked in short order. Here's the link TrustedSource - Check Single URL

    That domain is on an external host (Zen). It just has a simple php redirect to our joomla site which is hosted on LancsNGFL. The original domain is there for historical reasons (it was our school website hosting pre-LancsNGFL).

    The problem was reported to Westfield this morning, but there's still no sign of it being fixed.
