OK. I do not have a wordpress.org site, however, I do have a wordpress.com site. Here's the issue. I have built a wordpress.com site for teachers for a school district. The district's filtering system automatically blocks the site since it is "tagged as a blog in the code", or so I've been told by the IT people for the school district.
I appealed to have the site unblocked and they agreed. However, now the main domain is unblocked, the subdomains that contain the templates, photos, formatting, etc are still blocked. WordPress.com support identified all of the subdomains and suggested having the district unblock all of them. However, this route would require me to have future subdomains created for my site to be approved as well. This sounds like more of a pain than I want to deal with.
My idea now is to convert the site to wordpress.org and pay for web hosting. However, like I mentioned before, I was told that the "blog tag" in the code was the first clue that the filtering system used to block sites. With access to the code, would I be able to remove all of these triggers to the filtering system? Does this solution sound like it would work?
Any help is appreciated.
