    LGFL 2.0 and https sites

    Hey everyone,

    Has anyone experienced issues with some websites since moving over to LGFL 2.0?

    I have had problems specifically with Tumblr (Tumblr redirects to https when accessed)

    Also an issue with certain shopping sites.

    Browser just said the page cannot be displayed and that's it. It is not being filtered because I have also attempted to add the HTTPS path to the exception list.

    Yes, just add it to the allow list on webscreen 2.0. It doesnt give a block page though, thats the irritating part just a windows type message.

    Be careful messing with filtering on for that site. Tumblr has plenty of stuff you don't want available in a school.

    unfortunately not a lot I can do. It's part of the curriculum for the 6th formers and the school does not have Per User Filtering set up.

    I find it ridiculous that I must add https versions of sites manually!

    just add tumblr.com you dont have to add it twice then.

    I have the same issues opening up sites. They have it down as a curriculum site so it has to be unblocked. My hands are tied to a degree.
