Elgg Site blocked by company firewall

Hey all,

My employer has an Internet Usage Policy that classifies sites and blocks them based off of (what i believe to be) meta tags/data. The site worked initially but now it is being classified as "Games" but there are no games on the site.

Does anyone know where this data is held so it can be edited?

I have done some searchin gon the internet... but I didn't find much info.

  • It depends of what Internet filter is in place. Even if you change meta tags most internet filters will still block the site unless you request to unblock it

  • In my experience many of these filters read the content and search for keywords in the text. As Rodolfo says, once blocked, they remain blocked unless someone manually unblocks them.
