Is there a section where I can have swear words automatically changed to something else or deleted?
You can use the censoring options i the admincp.
Roosevelt believes in the freedom of speech, not censorship
Yes i too am a supporter of the 1st Amendment, but I like to keep it clean.
No Such Thing As Free Speech , it always comes at a cost for someone somewhere...
That freedom of speech crap is just that. When members pay the hosting bills, then, and only then, can they talk any way they want to on my forum.
Beyond that at least in the US the Constitution only restricts the government (and the states by virtue of the 14th amendment) from restricting our rights to free speech. Private citizens on their own property/workplace/areas they control can restrict you however they want. If you don't like it you don't have to go on their property.
That said the way I handle this on my forum is having a separate debate hall and arena where the gloves are off and anything goes. The rest of the forum you have to play nice.
Thank you. I just don't know where in the ACP
ACP -> Options -> Censoring
I agree. I pay the bills so I decide what words are allowed. Beyond that I would like to see the topics remain somewhat central to the forum theme.
Brogan, Thanks again!!
That seems to becoming a bigger and bigger problem around here.
I wish I could use the censoring function to correct misspelled words.
Kier's already using it to change Keir to Kier.
But I'd like to see brake replaced with break when talking about a system that slows a vehicle.
Or pedal instead of petal.
So do I! A little spell check would go a long ways.
I use it to add the registered or trade mark symbols to specific words on my wife's site. Works great.
Separate names with a comma.
