I've tried to block multiple sites. I can't figure out why I can't block reddit or anything related to it. 

 

Even typing the name in the list, it doesn't show in the pull down menu.

 

I'm not sure why I can't block whatever key word I want. Why does it have to be the words in their list?

In order to block reddit you will need to enter: www.websitename.com

 

So you will add: www.reddit.com

 

That will allow you to block just that website.

Unfortunately, that does not work, which is why I am posting here looking for assistance.

When I tested I added the following websites to try and block Reddit:

 

*.reddit.com

https://www.reddit.com

reddit.com

 

I even looked under insights at the visited websites in the Deco and selected when my computer visited reddit and said to block that traffic. That still did not work.

 

Once I just added: www.reddit.com it worked.

 

If you are still having issues, I would recommend contacting our technical support as there may be another issue going on.

Thanks. I've done all that, still doesn't work.

 

Maybe we are in two different spots?

 

I'm logging into tplink router>advanced tab>parental controls>modify>filter level>filter content + to add site

 

?

Ya, I don't know...I have it typed 4 different ways in my list, and it's been like that for a month or so.

 

Took a shower, came back and now it is blocked. I'm not sure why it's blocked now...

 

Must have been your presence.

 

Thanks for the assistance.

@Tony 

I can't block reddit on my AX50 / AX3000. I've tried adding both www.reddit.com and reddit.com to the keywords list; neither work.

 

Other URL filters do work; like "www.pinterest.com" for the website Pinterest, as well as urls that do not already have a built-in keyword, like "www.espn.com"... although in neither case does neglecting to add the "www." before the url work to block the sites, which is directly contrary to the examples given by the UI.

 

Why can't I block reddit?
