DansGuardian "Access has been denied" Page doesn't show if https site is blocked
If a http site is blocked a user receives the "Access has been denied" webpage with the reason why etc.
But if it is a https site the user only gets a generic "This page cannot be displayed".
How can I get Dansguardian to save its Access is denied page for both?
You can't easily.
So no easy way. How hard is the hard way?

With ssl interception because proxy need to be in the middle of the connection to pass a access denied error.
I had wondered if it would be possible to build a https site with SSL and wrap it into the package so that when people get blocked it can divert them to a SSL/HTTPS blocking notification page. The cert wouldn't match the website typed into the browser originally so it would react like most browsers react to a self signed cert but it wouldn't be just "error - sorry" message.
Just an idea. I know little about how you packages are constructed, no idea how tough this is. HTTPS is designed to keep people from being the "Man in the middle", so I feel your pain.
