    Hi,

    I am currently running OSX 10.6.8 and have a question about blocking webpages.

    I have come across the sudo nana hosts method to block webpages using the 127.0.0.1 method which works fine for facebook and other pages.

    However, is there any way to block all pages within one network? For example, blocking www.tumblr.com will not block http://macrumors.tumblr.com.

    Is there a way to block all tumblr sites?

    Thanks,

    I believe if you just enter tumblr.com all by itself that will block everything to that domain.

    I have tried that and it works for only tumblr.com and not any blog sites within the tumblr domain.

    Is there something I am missing?

    Thanks,

    I see some sites saying you can use wildcards like *.tumblr.com, and other sites saying this won't work. :confused: I have not tried it myself.
