How do I block specific keywords within the iBoss?
Posted by Michael Blank on 19 July 2012 09:26 PM

To do this please go to myiboss.com > Configure Internet Controls > Block Keywords.
This page allows you to create keyword Block lists as well as use our predefined lists. The iBoss will block Internet sites that contain these specific keywords in the URL. In addition, web searches using the keywords in the list(s) will also be blocked.

Pre-Defined Lists
Each category in this section contains its own keyword list. To enable a keyword list, select the checkbox next to the category. You may view and edit the list by clicking on the category link. When you are finished, click the "Apply" button. 

Custom List
In this section you may enter the custom keyword that you would like to block in the text box below and click the "Add Keyword" button. You may enter a maximum of 500 website URL keywords across all profiles. Each keyword may be a maximum of 19 characters in length (letters and digits only). To remove a keyword from the list, select the keyword and click the "Remove" button located at the bottom of the page. When you are finished, click the "Done" button.
*If you want a keyword to be blocked globally across all filtering groups, select the "Apply this entry to all filtering groups" option before clicking the "Add Keyword" button. The letter "G" will appear next to the entry which indicates that it is a global entry and applies to all filtering groups. When removing a global" entry, it will remove the entry from all filtering groups. 
*Select the "Wild Card" checkbox if you would like to use wild card matching on the keyword. When wild card matching is used, the entire url is searched for the keyword pattern. If wild card matching is not used, the iBoss will analyze the URL for queries containing the keywords entered.
