    Did not know where to throw this thread, so mods please move accordingly.

    I'm starting to test out K9 Web protection for my kids and hit a quick stumbling block. When I try to block key word searches such as lady gaga it does not seem to allow that.

    Is it because it will not allow the blocking of two key words with a space in between? Does anyone here use this software and have any tips/tricks?

    Thanks in advance.

    make it one word and see what happens.
    I to used K9 and it is good but found OpenDNS better.

    I use OpenDNS as well. But that does not block keyword searches just domains. Will try one word but I don't think that will do the trick.

    Will report back after I've tried.

    Thanks.

    Yes.
    Unfortunately, neither spaces nor accented characters are allowed.
    Otherwise, a great parental control software.
