    You forgot to mention what specific device with what browser this is.  Visit http://welcome.opendns.com/ on it to see if it uses OpenDNS at all.  It could be that another DNS service is configured on that device, or that it or its browser uses VPN or proxy technology.  Being connected to the same router does not necessarily mean using the DNS service configured on the router unless you took special measures to prevent devices using other DNS services, e.g. by blocking port 53 pass-through.

    Yeah, any browser, IE, Firefox, Chrome or Edge some of my connected devices are filtered and some are not. I AM using http://welcome.opendns.com/ to come to the conclusion of which devices are blocked or not.

    I would LIKE to set it up so the router does ALL the filtering, and doesn't allow any pass through or ANY devices to use any dns but the one it is set to. That way I don't have to set all my kids friend's devices everytime they bring some one over.

    You need to find out the reason why a device doesn’t use OpenDNS, and then you eliminate the reason accordingly.
    See for example https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/articles/227988027
