The Whitelist / Blacklist editor is located in your My Account area, and is a powerful tool that allows you to shape your Internet experience by giving you granular control over what can or cannot be seen.  It is comprised of two components:

1.  Whitelist: 

If a website is blocked you can un-block it by adding the domain to your whitelist.  

If a category of Internet conent has been blocked, you can unblock websites from within the blocked category by adding the domain to your whitelist.

2.  Blacklist:

If there is a website you would like to block add the domain to this list.

What makes the BUC Web Filter unique is the Whitelist which we can apply regular expressions to.  This gives you the ability to block an entire website, but still allow parts of the website through (sub-sites).  A few examples...

Example 1:  

To block the entire www.blogger.com website you would simply add blogger.com to your blacklist using "Ends with" option.  

See how.

Example 2:

To block the entire www.blogger.com website, but allow your blog to still be accessible you would add blogger.com to your blacklist using the "Ends with" option, and then add yoursitesname.blogspot.com to your whitelist using the "Matches exactly" option.  

See how.

Example 3:

To block the Social Networking category, but allow www.linkedin.com you would add linkedin.com to your whitelist, and check the Social Networking category.  

See how.
