Website: itsalmo.st is not being blocked

I'm trying to block users from going to the site: itsalmo.st

I go to: Objects > Custom Objects > Url Catagory > Blocked Urls and then add *.itsalmo.st/

Then I commit.

I waited a while, can see it inthe list but users can still reach it and use the page.

I tried it again, no go.

An hour later it's still not being blocked.

 

I'm a new admin to the Palo, am I missing something?

 

Thanks.

You need 2 entries:

itsalmo.st

*.itsalmo.st

That did it!

Just so I know, why did I need the other entry?

Because dot is separator between substrings so *.itsalmo.st does not match itsalmo.st
