You think thats a bug then try typing the first 8 charachers of your password and then randomly mash the keyboard for a while - bet it still allows you access.
Or even better and against the whole point of it friggin thing; try blocking something using a regex, porn for example, and then try browsing to it, bet you can still access porn.
Or another one, try using AD integration on 2 domains. The 2nd domain name and its users username must add upto less than 20 charachers for it to work ie mydomainUSERNAME. So if a user dares have a normal sized name then they wont get internet access.
Or try putting ./ at the end of a URL, bet it bypasses the filtering.
Or another one....
basically cachepilot has got to be a contender for the worst product ever sold to schools. If you have the choice id recommend ditching it before you lose teh will to live - ive just given up caring about it tbh, if the kids get on porn then what can ya do?...

The ./ bug was fixed a long time ago
Regex works ok for me, as does blocking complete domains such as "msn.co.uk"
Cachepilot isnt perfect but it works alot better these days.
Never quite worked out AD configuration though

I can promise you regex and domain blocking doesnt work 100%, or atleast it didnt before the holidays (this has been confirmed by every school in our LA, so either you have differant cachepilots to us or your users arnt reporting the problem to you).
Either way until i stopped caring it was only 2nd to Sims on causing problems, and for something which should sit in the background and rarely have to be touched...
Oh and has anyone had the "Temporary Glitch, please reload the website" message? How about you stop putting pointless messages on and actually bother to fix your F'in "product"

Regex can be a bit of beast to get right, an example of rocksolid Reg EX extension blocking on the Cachepilot would be this...

Are you 100% sure it work because like i say, between EVERY school in our LEA, our LEA support team and with the help of Equinet no-one can get it to work. Im convinced you have a differant version of cachepilot.
