Bad Word Filter

Postby linuxboard » Mon Sep 01, 2008 10:01 pm

I have what you would call at this time a multilingual problem with integrating phpBB message board that will automatically remove all k and K letters and replace it with unicode code point letter 0915, क.

Could anyone on here help or put me in contact with programmers / website designers that can help?

This is the problem:

phpBB has a bad word filter. However when you say change k/K letter to the devanagri letter, take this example:

"Thank you for registering at FreeForums.org In order to activate your forum, please click this link:"

=becomes=

"क you for registering at FreeForums.org In order to activate your forum, please क this क" .

Thus phpbb filter reads the replacing of =1 letter= (k/K) and putting the devanagri letter (क) as replacing "words" that contain that 1 letter (k/K) and putting the devanagri letter (क). Could be that somewhere in the phpbb filter code there is a "definition" for what is a "filter-unit," that needs changing because though the filter-unit is correct when it "reads," it is also correct when it "replaces"
one_letter_words (for example: space_k/K_space) however the filter-unit is wrong though when it "replaces" more_than_1_letter_words (for example: thank/click etc).

Looks like it is set to replace *k with क. I don't think you can use the Word Censor to universally replace a single letter in a word with another letter.

That may be possible using this modification.

I requested the website host to install Censor Partial Word Replacement module, http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=1020915&start=0

They say that they have installed the module however there is an error message showing, "Language file cpwr_mod.php couldn't be opened"? Could any trusted person answer/install the module properly?

Well we cannot really support you if your host is the one making the changes to the code, you will have to alert them to the fact that there is a problem and ask them to fix it. Support for cases such as this belong in the relevant MOD topic so I will go ahead and lock this topic. Thanks.
