SocialMedia: 6:00 pm – 9:30 pm – contains a list of domains including Discord, Facebook, Snapchat, etc.
Spotify: 6:00 am – 11:00 pm – the only domain listed is spotify
Internet: 7:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., then 6:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. – no domains listed
What I’m trying to accomplish:
– Kids can only have social media access between 6 and 9:30 at night. This works.
– Kids’ internet access shuts down altogether at 3 p.m. so they’re forced to step away from electronics and do their chores/go outside. This works.
– Kids should still be able to access Spotify so they have their tunes during chore time and bed time. THIS DOES NOT WORK. They can get to Spotify when the general Internet is open, but not between 3 and 6 or after 9:30.
@casino You need to check the logs in Raw view to see the blocked domain names and the block reasons.
Black/white lists and calendar entries are separate from each other. White listing a domain does not make it available for all times. You need to create another calendar with broader time slots for the more specific domains. I.e., you need to create a new calendar for mobile-webview.gmail.com, inbox.google.com, etc., and assign to it the time slots you want those domains available.
Another thing, i noticed that when i put “google.com” in the calendar, for each site i browse (pcwrt.com included) i have always a slowdonw in page loading, with the phrase: “Performing a TLS Handshake to “www.google.com”
@casino Black/white lists control whether the sites are blocked. When a site is blocked, it’s never available.
Calendars control when a site is available (for sites that are not blocked). When you put google.com on a calendar with no time allocation, it is equivalent to putting google.com on a black list. However, there are some differences:
If google.com is in the black list, you can bypass the blocking for subdomains such as news.google.com, mail.google.com by putting them in the white list.
If google.com is blocked by a calendar, you need to create a new calendar with open time slots for the subdomains such as news.google.com, mail.google.com.
The page slowdown is a bug. Thanks for bringing it up. It will be fixed in the next update.
