We have profanity filtering plugin(We developed 1.5 year ago). It has been on hold as we could not determine when the admin will want to do the filtering and how do we notify efficiently. Applying regular expression on everything is not the best way.
If you can help me understand what filtering you want to do(from site admins point of view), I will push this plugin forward and offer a free copy to you.
Thanks so much for your kind offer!
Basically, we just want to keep our community clean and safe i.e. no profanity in all postings including in private messages. Hopefully, your plugin can offer a way to input a list of keywords to flag or deny when people are posting bad or swear words.
We’ve tried putting the keyword list in the Discussions setting but it was too restrictive and people were not able to post even when there was absolutely nothing wrong with the content (i.e no profanity, etc).
On another note, since our community requires registration and there are explicit community rules (including suspension for infringements), is this sufficient safeguard even WITHOUT any profanity filter? (people can’t post if they are not registered).
Would really appreciate your invaluable feedback.
