I couldn’t find anything with an updated screenshot, so I sent one to OpenDNS support. Until they update it, it should look like this:

  1. Hey, I’m sorry for contacting you this way… but I don’t know what else to do. I read some of your posts in the WordPress forums while I was searching for answers to my question, and you seem pretty knowledgeable and helpful…I’ve wasted HOURS trying to figure out what to do. And have only got one post up on WordPress for it and no one answered it. Here’s a link to my question Thanks.. and just delete this post; I didn’t know what else to do..
