WP Content Filter
The WP Content Filter plugin is also available on the WordPress.org plugin repository. The WP Content Filter has undergone a major overhaul recently. The latest version finally has the option to turn strict filtering OFF which means profanity keywords embedded in your site content are now ignored!
Brief Description: With the WP Content Filter plugin you can now easily protect your site by filtering out profanity, swearing, abusive comments and any other keywords specified in the plugin option page. There are plenty of other options available as you can see in the screen shot below.
The plugin options page can be found under the Settings Menu, and it has been completely overhauled for WP Content Filter v2.25.
To see an example of how the plugin works, the screen shot below shows a sample post with some content and a comment. The filtered keywords entered in the plugin options page are: ‘Saturn’, ‘Jupiter’, ‘Pluto’, ‘admin’. Also, the plugin is configured in this test to only filter post content and comments (including the comment author name). You can see how this affects the output below.
The post content, comments, and author name are all inspected and words matching the keyword filters are replaced with fully/partially blanked out words containing censored characters. You have a choice of several different characters to use, the default is an asterisk ‘*’. In this example the hash ‘#’ character is used.
It is important to note that the content filter plugin does NOT change the content in the WordPress database whatsoever. Instead, the plugin simply filters WordPress content directly before it is displayed on the screen. To reiterate: no content in the database is ever altered!
Development of WP Content Filter
We are keeping the plugin up-to-date, and from now on it can be considered to be in active development. To fit in with this we now have a support package available for WP Content Filter (in fact it covers all of our free plugins, which are published on the WordPress plugin repository).
As of 28th May 2010 our support forums are open and gives our plugin users a place to visit for premium support, for a very small cost. This helps to ensure that the plugin is continuously maintained and updated, and will always work with the latest version of WordPress.
