    I am trying to block porn. The filter works, but with a glitch. If I google "porn", then the links come up and if I try to click on the link, the site is blocked. However,when the page of links is displayed, underneath the toolbar is a list including images and videos. If you click on 'images" it will show the images and same with the "videos". Very easy to bypass the filtering. How do I restrict access to the images, videos, etc.?

    First of all, you should check the forum archive to see if this has been answered:

    Secondly, there is no 'glitch'; as you say the filter works, which is what OpenDNS is designed to do; if the search engine retrieves thumbnails without accessing the target site via OpenDNS, there’s no way OpenDNS has a glitch

    Lastly, check out this post which addresses specifically what you’ve described in Google; I would be inclined to say similar features are available through other Search Engines, but your mileage may vary:
