As Designed Censored Words not working as what I expected

    As described censored word "dog" will filter dog, not dogs.

    But I want to exclude also those words inside a URL.

    Like www.example.com/dog/index.html

    I would like to exclude it to the filter list, Kindly move this to appropriate Forum if not suited here.

    Using 1.3, I have "dog" (no * around it) censored and that URL gets replaced. Note that a URL that contains "dog" but as a part of a word would not be censored (as you acknowledge on the first line).

    Is this not what you're seeing? If not, I'd need an exact configuration to replicate it.

    Yes, for example I have added a censored word "dog" (without asterisk before and after)
    If someone post this url: www.example.com/dog/index.html
    Currently on XF 1.3.0 beta 1, it will become www.example.com/***/index.html
    I don't want that keyword of the url being filtered.

    Can you do it on next release to ignore those censored keywords on URL?
    Please Mike. :rolleyes:

    The short answer is no. We VERY intentionally censor URLs. It is commonly used for this exact purpose.
    Luke F and RoldanLT like this.
