    Did you configure all three DNS entries? If not, fill the third slot with one of 208.67.222.220 or 208.67.220.222.

    Then flush both, your local resolver cache and your browser cache, and try again.

    Ok, did that, but still the same...

    What sites aren't blocked? Post the complete output of the following commands:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.nslookup example.com.

    where example.com is such a domain in question.

    Also, let us know what OS and what browser you're using.

    The commands again, they got corrupted:

    nslookup -type=txt debug.opendns.com.

    nslookup example.com.

    It is working now. Perhaps I just needed to shut down and restart? I don't know, but I'm glad it is working. Thank you rotblitz for taking the time to help. I appreciate it!

    If a reboot fixed the problem, then your local resolver cache wasn't flushed.
