Block Pages

dope.swg is all about making things easier for you. It comes with block and warning restriction pages ready to go - but you can personalise the pages by creating custom block or warning pages for your organization.

When a user goes to a web category that has a restriction level of either block or warning, dope.swg will serve an appropriate block or warning page to the user.

dope.swg provides default block and warning pages that can be assigned to any category, super or sub category, with restriction levels of block, warning, and cloud applications.

You can create customised block or warning pages that can be assigned to categories of block, warning, and cloud applications.

Default Pages

To make changes to the text displayed in the default block and warning pages, go to Setting -> Block Pages.

Here, there is a table listing the four different types of default pages: Block, Warning, Security Risk, and Cloud Application.

To edit the text on a default block page, in the table select the page type you want to edit (Block, Warning, Security Risk, or Cloud Application). This will provide you with an area to edit the Page Title and the Body Message of the select page.

Edit or add the new text you require to the Page Title or the Body Message.

To review your updates, just select Preview Page and the page will open in a new tab for you to review.
