Customize the URL Filtering Response Pages

The firewall provides three predefined URL Filtering Response Pages that display by default when a user attempts to browse to a site in a category that is configured with one of the block actions in the URL Filtering Profile (block, continue, or override) or when Safe Search Enforcement blocks a search attempt. However, you can create your own custom response pages with your corporate branding, acceptable use policies, links to your internal resources as follows:
  1. Export the default response page(s).
    1. Select
      Device
      Response Pages
      .
    2. Select the link for the URL filtering response page you want to modify.
    3. Click the response page (predefined or shared) and then click the
      Export
      link and save the file to your desktop.
  2. Edit the exported page.
    1. Using the HTML text editor of your choice, edit the page:
      • If you want the response page to display custom information about the specific user, URL, or category that was blocked, add one or more of the supported Table 1.
      • If you want to include custom images (such as your corporate logo), a sound, or style sheet, or link to another URL, for example to a document detailing your acceptable web use policy, include one or more of the supported Table 2.
    2. Save the edited page with a new filename. Make sure that the page retains its UTF-8 encoding. For example, in Notepad you would select
      UTF-8
      from the
      Encoding
      drop-down in the Save As dialog.
  3. Import the customized response page.
    1. Select
      Device
      Response Pages
      .
    2. Select the link that corresponds to the URL Filtering response page you edited.
    3. Click
      Import
      and then enter the path and filename in the
      Import File
      field or
      Browse
      to locate the file.
    4. (
      Optional
      ) Select the virtual system on which this login page will be used from the
      Destination
      drop-down or select
      shared
      to make it available to all virtual systems.
    5. Click
      OK
      to import the file.
  4. Save the new response page(s).
    Commit
    the changes.
  5. Verify that the new response page displays.
    From a browser, go to the URL that will trigger the response page. For example, to see a modified URL Filtering and Category Match response page, browse to URL that your URL filtering policy is set to block.
