How to Use

The Plugin is quite simple to use but here are the basic ways to use it on your site.

  1. Choose from the various content filters to select which sections of your sites content should be filtered for profanity keywords, these include: Blog post content, Post title (including recent posts sidebar widget), Post comments (including recent comments sidebar widget), Post tags, and Tag Cloud.
  2. Enter all the keywords in the text box that you wish to filter out of your sites content. When each keyword is found on your site it is replaced with wild card characters.
  3. Various wild card characters can be chosen in the Plugin options. Also, the filtered keywords can be formatted to retain: first character, no characters (all wild card), or first and last character.
  4. There is also a facility to choose the search case type too. The default is set at ‘Case Insensitive’ and it is recommended to keep this setting as it will capture the most instances of the keyword you wish to filter. For example, with the default setting of ‘Case Insensitive’ the keyword ‘*******’ entered in the Plugins admin panel will look for words such as: ‘*******’, ‘*******’, ‘*******’, ‘*******’, ‘*******’ and so on.
  5. Once all the options have been set, simply view your site and look out for the keywords you entered in the Plugin options, which are now replaced with the new inoffensive version!
