Word Censor Notifications

Post by Cohaven » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:16 pm

As an admin, I would like to receive notifications, email or within-board, if someone makes a post on the forums that contains words that are on the censored list. As a measure to moderate inappropriate behavior. Is there a built in feature for that or an extension?

If this feature doesn't exist, I suppose I could create an extension that watches for a post submission event, scans the text being posted for words from the phpbb_words table, and sends an email to an admin if a match is found. Does that sound about right or is there a better alternative?

There is no built in option to do what you want and I have never heard of an extension to do that either.

Probably easier to look at where the core code checks word censoring and use a phpBB event at that point - if there is one

From what I understood after reading about word censoring, the censoring happens per user, and I don't want the email sent each time a user opens a page with censored content. So doing it on post submission should be more straightforward.
