What is a Scene and how do I create one?

How can I allow / block website Scenes with *wildcard* asterisks?

Depending on which type of Scene List is created, websites can be allowed or blocked using *wildcards, another term for * (asterisks).

For example, if you want to allow students to access their Infinite Campus Student Portal, you may want to use wildcards. The login page uses this URL address (newpraguemn.infinitecampus.org/campus/portal/newprague.jsp). If you copy/paste this URL as an allowed website, students would not be able to access their IC Grades page. Instead, use *wildcards* to allow students to navigate to any page on the domain or subdomains.

Example: *infinitecampus.org* will allow students to access any of the NPAS IC pages (newpraguemn.infinitecampus.org) AND any of the help / support pages found on the main IC website (infinitecampus.org/contact).
