I've unblocked Pinterest but it looks strange, why is this?

Summary

Allowing the Pinterest image hosting site to resolve pinterest.com leaves it looking strange.

Problem

When trying to access Pinterest, the full content is not displayed. The page loads but no images are shown.

Although you have allowed Pinterest (pinterest.com), the images on this site are actually hosted on pinimg.com. This site is being blocked as this is an image hosting site.

Solution

  1. Add the domain pinimg.com to a current custom allow category, or create a new one — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/customcategory.htm.
  2. Add the custom category to an allow policy or create a new allow policy — see https://help.smoothwall.net/Latest/Content/modules/guardian3/cgi-bin/guardian/filteringpolicywiz.htm.
