Squid Special Permission Required...

Hi Friends,

I have configured squid on RHEL-5, Its working fine...

I have created files for blocking sites...Its working fine too...

In this file i have blocked some words like facebook, youtube etc... this is also working fine... now what is issue means, whenever employees open any site if facebook youtube word comes in that page means that total webpage is blocking, so i want to give some special permission for some sites...

Like some official sites will come with facebook share or some advertisements then that page will block, so i wanted to give some site full permission which webpage contain blocked words also should open...Like some bank sites also having facebook words, so its getting block, here i wanted to give this site full permission to open..

How to do this ?

But i cant remove words from blocked list...

Squid should not be doing any content filtering. So, it is not supposed to block the site if the content of the webpage contains some words. It is supposed to parse only the web URL.
Also, if you know of the domains and URLs that you need to allow, create an access control list with the names of such domains, and then allow this ACL. This will make sure those domains are allowed no matter what the bottom rules say.

In addition, post your squid configuration file without spaces and comments.
