    I use massive censor function for many significative words like XenForo

    Posting an URL in messagges, the result is http://www.mysite.com/XenForo/...

    Is it possible to immunize the URLs from censor action?

    Censoring in URLs is intentional - it's commonly done to block people from posting certain URLs.

    Thank you Mike, is there a "tip" to disable it in URLs?

    No, you will have to modify the code for that.

    I use the censoring feature for correct/expand/capitalize common words like google=Google xenforo=XenForo xf=XenForo etc.
    Censoring is active in URL text also, so an URL like this: http://xenforo.com.... became http://XenForo.com... and sometimes this brake the URL.

    Is it possible to disable censoring function in URL text only?

    I love the features because increment the forum reading and SEO effect. But there are places where censor feature must be disabled for ensure correct forum operations.

    Ragtek just you! :whistle:
    Why not develop an add-on? :p

    Because it's not possible:(

    The censor happens on output and you would need to edit ALL templates and remove {xen:string censor, from the template where you don't need this

    Oooops... And an add-on cannot do this? I didn't know...

    There should be a separate option for censoring URLs. I don't really care for URLs to be broken on such loose censorship options.

    For example: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-smushit/

    No reason that url should be censored as it does not meet the intended use of your censorship setup.

    You could write your own censor function that can possibly determine if it is censoring URLs and such and then overriding the actual one through an event listener and doing:
    XenForo_Template_Helper_Core::$helperCallbacks['censor'] = array('Your_Addon''censorString');
    ragtek and Rob like this.

    I would like to see HTML allowed in censor replacement text. This will allow for people to swap images in for bad words as well as replace words with links.

    Any ideas anyone? RagTek? KK?
