MOD Validated/Released

Notes:
This MOD stops a lot of the tricks people use to get by the word censor. Not every trick is stopped by this MOD althought quite a few are.

Hiya, good mod man, much thanks.

I've got a small problem though.

Typically, when you censor words they're listed as *badword* *fubar* and what not. This avoids people leading into the words with things like "realbadword" and "bigfubar" which will get by the censor.

The problem is, with this mod, whatever word comes before the badword will be censored out. This makes for some really strange looking sentences sometimes. Now, you can take the asterisks out to avoid that, but then you're back where you started with the 'realbadword's getting by the censor.

Thanks,

Another option is for your board members to just not use 'badword' in the first place. :wink: Or, if they think they really NEED the ****'s there, they could put those in (or whatever your replacement text is) themselves instead of 'badword'. Other then that.. that's the way it is. This mod takes an aggressive approach to catching the words that you don't approve of on your board... at the risk of some possible collateral damage.

I don't think you understood me there.

When I make a list of words I'd like censored, I will put a wildcard on either side of it. So if want to censor "darn", I'll list it in the filter list as "*darn*". The replacement, as you stated, doesn't matter.

The reason those wildcards are there is so that you can't get around the filter by saying "goshdarn". If the wildcards are there, the filter works, if they aren't, then goshdarn gets posted. That holds true for both your mod and the standard version.

Now the problem is, that when I use those wildcards with your mod, then it censors too much. "darn" gets censored and "goshdarn" gets censored. But whatever word comes before "darn" also gets erased. Obviously, that makes things very difficult to understand when words are missing.

Right. That's a side effect of the censor looking for patterns like "d a r n" which would get by the ordinary censor, but not this one. The trouble you are experiencing is, if someone types, "that's just to darn bad", then "to" get's censored with the "darn". There's no way around this without giving up the censors ability to also recognize "d a r n", which pretty much defeats the point of the mod.
If your members have the overwhelming need to give the impression of the word "darn" in their message (even though they know it'll get censored), they could actually just type, "that's just to **** bad", themselves, instead of leaving it up to the censor to figure out what to censor, and what not. OR, they could just surrendor to the almighty censor, and type "that's just to bad", and still get their message acrosss without the need to use inappropriate words. In time, I suspect you'll find your members giving up and taking the second choice.

This mod doesn't entierly work on my test board. I was still able to sneak bbcode in between the leters of badword like this:

Code: Select all

bad[b][/b]word
. Any idea how to fix that?

This mod does not properly install on my forum. When i insert the new code, my whole forum dies. It will only load blank pages. (no php output from server?)

When I installed this mod my word censor functionality went away completely. I checked the code several times to make sure I entered everything in the correct place and found no errors. I ended up restoring the functions.php file. Thoughts?

how to prevent this word

Post by INTELIPN » Mon Oct 04, 2004 2:34 pm

Hmm..I just encountered a slight "problem"

The intellicensor unfortunately blocked this word "assets". Mind you, I have a keyword sensor for "ass".

Any suggestions?
