Dansguardian- filter google but not kidrex

Hi guys,

I recently came into a problem where i was trying to restrict kids to and any other localized google search engines. However, i need to allow them to use Im using squid with dansguardian filtering, and is using a whitelist on squid. which means i only allow whats on the whitelist and deny all.

My problem:
-allow in the whitelist only, however the search engine could not display any results.

this problem forced me to put on the whitelist, so that works properly. And this isn't what i want as it introduce potential risk of explicit materials to children.

is there any ways to allow kidrex only, but deny any other access to google search engines?

I'm afraid there's not really much you can do. The URLs that kidrex
displays are dynamically generated via javascript from the google
home-page, and I don't know of any way of 'preprocessing' that on
the proxy to suit your needs.

AFAICT, you should be able to get it working with something like this (example):
acl kidrex dstdomain
acl kidrex_google1 url_regex ^
acl kidrex_google2 url_regex ^

http_access allow kidrex
http_access allow kidrex_google1
http_access allow kidrex_google2
http_access deny all
Basically, you allow only the specific Google URLs which KidRex requires (instead of the entire site).
