Can I customize the blocked page content?

Whenever a user attempts to access a blocked category/domain/URL, a blocked page is displayed to him. The content on this blocked page can be customized if required.

You can customize the following aspects of the blocked page:

  1. Custom message
  2. Contact Admin or Temporary Allow button
  3. School Logo

Button options

  1. Disable Contact Admin settings in Global Settings. 
  2. Go to the Policy Editor > Global Settings > Show 'Contact Admin' button
  3. Toggle the switch to Enable 'Contact admin'.


For policies with Allow Teachers to Approve Sites (Policy Editor > Each policy > Enable the switch to Authorize users assigned to this policy approve site)


Button settings blocked page results

  1. No Button: Disabled Contact Admin checked. There is no policy with ‘Allow Teachers to Approve Sites’ or coming from an out-of-school IP address.
  2. Temporarily Allow Button: The temporary allow option is only applicable in schools with at least one policy with Temporarily Allow privileges.
  3. Contact Admin Button: In all other cases, the contact admin button will be displayed. Clicking on the contact admin will open your default email client with information from the blocked event.

*Note that it is possible to temporarily allow a blocked site if the teacher deems it necessary. To learn how to click here.
