    An interesting Smoothwall exception required

    For some reason, some of our sixth form students are doing a controlled assessment where the research topic is breast implants. Due to the content of these sites, our Smoothie box sensibly categorises the sitesa s 'Adult' but I need to add an exception so that sixth form students can access the pages

    Any ideas?

    Are you using any form of auth on the smoothie?

    If so give them their own group and associated whitelist/allowed sites?

    I'd do a top 100 google search (breast implant research site:.ac.uk) , pick out common legit themes (medical universities, research papers etc) and whitelist domains or change weighting on phrase groupings.

    i.e change weightings so that breast + implant + .ac.uk gets a good negative score.

    I've found that adding an exception for (breast) and (breast, implant) fopr the sixth form, allows access to suitable sites without opening up access to page after page of pr0n.

    I can always disable this exception in a couple of weeks when they are done.
