The profanity filter
The profanity filter is used to prevent inappropriate words from displaying in the forum.
Our forum system has two profanity filters modes:
Full Filter: This option will block all profanity even if it begins or ends with other characters.
Light Filter: This option will only block profanity that begins and ends with a space.
For Example: The text shit.... will be blocked by the full filter but it will not be blocked by the light filter because the word is followed by a period. Some people may want to turn this feature to light because it may cause a problem while trying to post some words. For example: scrape contains the word crap, so it would be blocked by the full filter.
Please follow the directions mentioned below to activate the profanity filter:
You can add more words or phrases to the profanity filter by clicking the Edit Filter link next to profanity filter level drop down.
