How to install Squidguard

I have moved from a watchgaurd to PFSENSE and I am a complete novice on this.
I needed a web content filter for my company, I was previously using the Watchguard webblocker by surf control, which was doing a decent job.
I tried to install squidguard to the pfsense but the installation continuously failed, I then decided to also install "SQUID" first, so I did then the Squidguard installed and was completed. I managed to install the blacklist into squidguard and select all my preferences.
I followed the instructions here but my content is not being filtered I can go onto common sites like PLAYBOY.com etc etc and they work.
Do I have to change any settings in "SQUID" or under Proxy? to get squidguard "proxy filter" to work? I changed a few items and set the proxy filter to 80 and now I am unable to get back into the web GUI for PFSENSE I am pulling up a page with Russian Characters, so I don't even know how I can fix this issue because I cant' get into the GUI
Can someone please provide me with some assistance.
Update: it seems as if the squidguard is blocking pages now, but I still can't get into the PFSENSE box, this seems to be blocked as well since it's an IP address and I set the squidguard to block IP addresses in the URL bar, I don't recall the hostname of the PFSENSE either, any info on how to get back in?
