    Static URL filtering followed by FortiGuard categories.  See FD40476 or 11158.

    URL filters are get examined first, then Category filters.

    The KB is really old but I don't think they've ever changed this order. Otherwise, it would break many policies when it's upgraded.

    So if I turn off the category filter and put a * monitor in the URL filter, I will effectively log all web access.
