Banners and affiliated websites
This is a two part issue:
My child visited an allowed web site which apparently was getting some of it's images from an affiliated website that was not allowed. It also looked like it had a banner that was from a site that is not allowed.
Family safety correctly allowed the child to enter the site and correctly blocked the images and banners. It also indicated that something was blocked via the Family Safety notification.
After some research I decided to add the affiliated images site but leave the banner add site blocked.
The issues are:
1. The online logging only listed her visit to the main website not the blocked affiliated site or the banner site. So, I couldn't add the image site to the approved sites list via the web. I had to keep reloading the site to get the notification pop-up so I could write it down.
2. I think the site should log all blocked sites even if they are affiliates or banners BUT it should indicate that they were blocked as a part of the actual visited site. If it just lists them individually it would appear my child was attempting to visit the blocked site directly which was not the case but I would like to see what types of sites are piggybacking on the allowed site.
