    I'm sure this was mentioned elsewhere but if it was, I couldn't find it ... but I am hoping that their is a way to include "stop words" for the friendly url's feature.

    Common Words like "and, of, the", etc.

    And custom words like curses. I don't mind them being used around the site but I don't want them in the url's.


    Thanks :)

    Just decided to test it out... it looks like filtered words are removed from the url. Not sure about allowing these words without hving them in the url

    threads/curses-that-the-*****-is-wrong.3485/

    but it is filtered
    curses -- **** that **** the ***** is wrong

    Hold on, I think this was semi misinterpreted. Censored words are stripped out, but that's because they're replaced with *'s which aren't used in URLs anyway.

    There's no controls over what text is stripped out of a URL.

    Can that be made a suggestion then? strip stop words out of urls, and also some character replacement for URL's so for example replace & with and in a URL.

    That was basically my suggestion. I don't care to, or want to, censor words but I would like to ensure those words don't show up in the url.
