Save/Restore/Share settings

Adding the ability to backup ones own settings and to be able to share it with other families to create a strong list that every one has worked on.

    This is a feature we are considering adding in a future release of K9 – however, we are wondering if people want it more for “Save/Restore” functionality (for backup purposes), “Share” functionality (to share, for example, white or black lists with friends), or “Central Management” functionality (to keep multiple K9 installations in-sync with one another).

    Please give your feedback and suggestions as comments. Also, if you are looking for “Centralized Management” functionality, you may want to also add your votes to the “Remote/Central Management” idea at https://k9webprotection.uservoice.com/forums/84793-general/suggestions/1206565-remote-central-administration

        Just an option to import/export URL keywords lists would be amazing.
        As it is, I have a whole bunch of words in a custom list, and if I want to move to a new computer it's going to be a huge pain to manually add all the words again.

        i wish to export my settings to a file so i could share it with others or could reuse those settings if i reinstall K9 Web protection

        Inability to share or transfer whitelist settings is becoming a deal breaker. You are apparently still at the same place as last year. If we do a tight category setup there are over a hundred sites we have to add to the 'Allowed' list. We have a dozen systems we are testing (bought licenses). That is 1200 entries I have to type in. Management wants more systems protected and I won't approve more until this issue is resolved. Thank you.

        A workaround is to copy and paste your whitelist to an excel sheet and create a macro using iMacros to import the sites.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We really need this option. 16 PC's with over 50 sites to whitelist.
        Does anyone have a temporary solution ASAP?

        Thanks for this GREAT software. I'm an IT and I've a lot of customers using it.
        I'm also looking for an option to copy/share setting so I wont need to reset the K9 for every customer.

        Thank you !!!

        For me, it would be for Save/Restore functionality only, and I would like the feature, please.

      • HeyzeussHeyzeuss commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agree, I need to uninstall and reinstall in order to troubleshoot a network issue. This means I need a configuration backup. Also, I use this on more than one computer, so the ability to duplicate settings would help.

      • Gerd WilhelmiGerd Wilhelmi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would use it for central management/sync of multiple Mac and pc in the house.

        This is a must have as my custom URL lists are extensive (both white and black)

      • NewtonNewton commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would use this for backup.

        This would save lots of tedium having to otherwise re-enter a long list of URLs or keywords after a reinstall.

        Also good for self-modders who "set and forget" their settings and are likely to forget them after not checking settings for a while.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I think a Save/Restore is imperative for backup. Many a time I have had to uninstall and then reinstall and lost all my settings!!!

        I am at a virtual school and we have over 300 laptops the stuudents use at home. We are constantly reimaging the laptops and would really appreciate a way to copy settings or to change the product key after install. Is there a file that we could change the product key?

      • ChadChad commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I am primarily interested in the ability to keep multiple K9 installations in-sync with one another (centrally managed functionality). However, the ability to share/give a configuration with another family, is also a great idea.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Here's an easy workaround:

        1. Download iMacros at http://www.iopus.com/download/imacros/ and install it.
        2. Download whitelist.iim at http://goo.gl/nk8OJ and save in the macro folder.
        3. Log in to K9 and go to Web Site Exceptions.
        4. Using iMacros, run the whitelist.iim.

        You'll now have about 200 sites added to your whitelist with just a few clicks.

        P.S. The same method can be applied for blacklists or keyword lists.
