Q:  In WebWhacker 3.2 I used to be able to double- click on a Url and it would open the browser, how do I turn this feature on or off?
A:  WebWhacker 2000 is designed to work like your Windows Explorer, so when you Double click on a Url it moves down a level. You can easily turn this feature on or off by going to Tools, Options, View tab and deselecting or selecting Double Clicking Browses Rather than Moving Down a Level.

Q:  Can you give me some tips for secure use of WebWhacker 2000 to allow kids at my school to browse web pages without connection to the internet. (I work at a youth prison and the kids must not be allowed any access to the internet) This product sounds like it will work, but I was wondering if you had any tips so I could ensure they would not access the internet through the program. Thanks for any help or advice you can provide.
A:  You have a couple of options:

1) To make sure they can't get online, make sure that the computers cannot access the Internet. Take away the internet connection from those computers. WebWhacker cannot stop a computer from going online, it can only provide content that has been pre-whacked.

2) You can whack all the sites that you want them to have access to and then put them on a network drive, and then point their browser to the network drive. Point it at the wwhlines.htm file.
Example:
N:\WebWhacker\Entertainment\wwhlines.htm

Where you've put all the sites in the Entertainment folder in WebWhacker and then copied your My Documents\WebWhacker directory to a network drive that their machines can access.

You can also whack information on the machine that they will be using, and then go to the Tools/Options... Proxy tab and turn on the Local Proxy Cache. This will set up a small web server on that machine. Then go to the icon in the tray and right-click and choose Options... and put a check mark by Offline mode. This will keep the proxy from accessing the Internet. Then the students will access the WebWhacker content with regular URLs like "http://www.somesafestuff.com"
