Specific words in the filter   Message Board

Started Feb-6 by Jenifer (Zarknorph); 584 views.

I am having the most frustrating time trying to set up my word filter.

Please tell me the steps I need to take.

I also need to know if other symbols are accepted.

This is the specific word I want to block (don't worry, it is not offensive, merely annoying).

"G=G+1"

How do I make this appear as #### in my forum?

Did you add it that way it is not working? 
Frankly I gagged the member "spamming" that and it worked spiffy! wink

Ok try this:

Under Forum Moderation - Postings with filtered words.


Scroll down and set the filter this way

I did that.

Apparently it's working for you, but I can still see it.

I don't want to lock the member out.  He is not JUST this macro.

However, I want to never see JUST this macro again.

If you set it up that way exactly and its not replacing the suppressed word (currently its sending my test posts to your mod queue)  Try choosing No moderation. PM when you do and I'll test again.  

Where is my mod queue?

I don't have ANY interest in reviewing posts.

I just want to make it a swear word that no one can see.

I'll just make you staff, you'll see the word in the list.

There, you're staff.

I've done this before.

Somehow I have forgotten everything I ever learned about hosting a forum.

It's not you....

Walt/ Gunter...

Does the word filter not work in Zeta the way it did in Classic? At one point the filter was sending the posts containing G=G+1 to the moderation dashboard. We tinkered trying to get the messages to post with the offending phrase #### out. Now it won't work at all. She had asterisks around the *G=G+1* so I removed them and still nada. Could one of you take a look in case we are both nuts? https://forums.delphiforums.com/aususuk

Thank you!

As I recall, staff posts don't get filtered,  is that being considered?
