Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Profanity Filter

Profanity Filter was created by melvins138
Hi! I am looking for a way to filter profanity for my forum.

I have searched this forum for an answer, and also searched Google, but with no luck.

I know there is a debate as to whether swear words or cussing should be filtered, as we are all adults. But none-the-less I run a charity's website that prefers there be no swearing, cussing or profanity readable for it's members, some of whom are children. Plus there really is no reason to have it on this particular forum.

I have even seen profanity be filtered on this forum, and I am looking to find out how to do that.



Is there anyone who can point me in the right ****ing direction? :P

Thanks,
Melvins138

yes looks like the plugin has been removed on the jed.

I can found only old plugins, that will not work anymore.

Is there a place to access that plugin that is not JED?

this is a old plugin:
joomla.stefysoft.com/jootools-extensions...t-free-download.html

But I think it will not work anymore.

If I am right in understanding your question, you are looking for a "lazy", automated way to replace text posted in your forum with some other text. I'm sorry but I think you're out of luck.

I agree with you, in the sense that if your specific website has terms and conditions that prohibit the use of certain language, that you should be able to moderate your own forum in any way that you like.

This was easy; having an effective team of forum moderators makes this possible. I suggest you take another closer look at the source of your information:

:lol:

It's sad that some people think that doing due diligence to make sure a solution doesn't already exist before spending precious time creating it, is looking for the "lazy" way out. The rest of the world thinks that's called being resourceful and proficient.

So anyone else searching for a more automated solution for profanity or fowl language or cursing filtering, this is how I addressed my issue:

1) Go to Extensions > Plugins > System - Kunena Forum
2) Set "Joomla Content Plugin Support" to Yes, and "Run plugins on" to contain "Bodies"
3) Download the "Bad Word Filter" from JED... located here .
4) Enable "Bad Word Filter" Plugin
5) List the "Bad Words" you want to filter and the "HTML Replacement" you want to use, per the instructions.

This worked for me on J3.5.1 using Bad Word Filter 1.0.4 and Kunena 4.0.10 on PHP 5.5.30

It's not 100% perfect, but it seems to catch the majority of words I need filtered, leaving additional manual moderation to a minimum.
