I have a website that works great; however in one location there is a corporate firewall that limits my site from being viewed by my users because the website catagory is "none". If the catagory can be changed then the users can view it safely. Is there a way to change this ?

Hi Ryan,

Wow, this is a new one for me. I am not sure what type of category could be changed for your site to bypass a corporate firewall. Can you point me in the direction of where you found the information about your site having the category of "none". I'm sorry I am not sure about his right now, but if you give me some more information I can try to help!

The only think i could think of is by right clicking on the page and going to properties under "Type" it says "not Available". I am thinking that is the key that the fire checks for most say "html document". Those sites have no problem. Is this a correct assumption? Is there a way to change this in Yola for my site? www.local723spfpa.org is my site

Hi Ryan,

As you say, it is a corporate firewall that is blocking some of your users from viewing your site. These firewalls have their own databases which basically categorize all sites into different types ("marketing", "porn", "allowed", "none", etc). If you want to change what category the firewall thinks your site is in, you will need to speak to the administrators of the firewall. However, these big corporates are notoriously unyielding - if they block sites that don't even have a category, they are probably unlikely to listen to you.

Also bear in mind that this will only affect the users of your site who are behind the firewall - everybody else on the internet will still be able to see your site perfectly fine. These firewalls usually exist in workplaces where they wish to restrict what people look at during working hours, and it's not really our place to tell them to change that. When your users go home, they should be able to get to your site just fine :)
