    Yahoo SafeSearch

    Is there a way of enabling Yahoo Safesearch across a LAN?

    Had some interesting search results thrown up by a member of staff - safesearch removed them, but dont fancy going round 300+ clients

    GPO? Script?

    Re: Yahoo SafeSearch

    how are you enabling or disabling safe search in the first place ?

    Is this one of those web browser add ons or what exactly ?

    I think its just an option on the website same as google. in which case, could you not set the option, which will create a cookie, and then copy that cookie to the student's default profile's temp internet settings dir?

    Re: Yahoo SafeSearch

    I force Yahoo searches via Yahooligans on my Squid Proxy here (I use squidguard for url rewriting).

    Code:
    rewrite yahoo_search {
    s@http://search.yahoo.com/search?@ht...gans.yahoo.com/search/index?@ir
    s@http://uk.search.yahoo.com/search?...gans.yahoo.com/search/index?@ir
    }
    Likewise I rewrite Google searches/image searches using strict filtering.



    Code:
    rewrite google_safesearch {
    s@http://www.google.com/search?@http://www.google.com/search?safe=on&@ir
    s@http://www.google.co.uk/search?@ht...w.google.co.uk/search?safe=on@ir
    }
    
    rewrite google_imagesearch {
    s@http://www.google.com/images?@http://www.google.com/images?safe=on&@ir
    s@http://www.google.co.uk/images?@ht...w.google.co.uk/images?safe=on&@ir
    }

    Similarly, the SmoothWall "guardian" products have checkboxes which do almost exactly what Geoff's examples do.

    Should probably tempt him away and hire him as a dev

    The Register reports Warning: do not search Yahoo! for 'franchise'. :shock:

    Amusingly, when using my redirection to Yahooligans the only result I get is 'Free Willy 3: The Rescue'.
