If using Censoring ( /admin.php?options/groups/censoringOptions/ ) to replace words, and using the same word as a core bbcode it breaks/stops the bbcode from working.

My site uses Censor to replace some incorrectly spelt words to their correct spelling, for example tire -> tyre and center -> centre

In this case, the use of center in the censor then breaks/stops the bbcode from working.

That shouldn't, and doesn't appear to be the case in my testing. BB code is parsed and rendered before censoring takes place.

I have the same censoring option set up:

I have a post containing the following:

Code:
[CENTER]center text[/CENTER]
Not center text.

It renders correctly, the text is still centred and the replacement of the words works as expected:

You're right, and I'm right too, I should have been more thorough in my testing.
Have updated the thread title, as it impacts on signatures ...

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.4).

Change log:
Ensure that about and signature are not censored before rendering as BB code.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
