    "approved by community to block it"

    No, this is not what the community can do.  The community only tags and votes on domains (not websites) for certain categories, and you can select these categories of domains for blocking.

    "Do not block community approved websites"

    What do you mean by this?  If you select a category of community approved domains, these domains will be blocked.  Not blocking these would defeat the purpose.  If you don't want to block a category, don't select it.

    "it sill can be opened."

    What is the related domain name?

    "Do I need to still block the websites one by one ?"

    No, you shouldn't need to do anything in addition.

    Do you use OpenDNS at all?  http://welcome.opendns.com/
    Only if yes, is your IP address registered at your dashboard?  https://dashboard.opendns.com/settings/

    for instance, n11.com is voted by community to block for ecommerce category. But still can be entered. There are so many this kind of domains.

    n11.com is "Not yet decided in any categories" and is still "Awaiting votes".
    See at https://domain.opendns.com/n11.com

    It will be approved for category Ecommerce/Shopping when it will have received enough votes and a domain tagging moderator will have approved it.  Only from then on it will be blocked if you selected this category for blocking, not before, unless you add it to your individual "always block" list.

    An approved domain would look like this:
    https://domain.opendns.com/walmart.com
    This is being blocked if you selected category Ecommerce/Shopping

    So everything is just normal.  Not sure what your concern is about...

    Correct: https://domain.opendns.com/gittigidiyor.com

    Something is wrong at your end.
    Are you using OpenDNS at all?  Check at http://welcome.opendns.com/
