Kunena 5.1.18 Released (30 Jun 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.18 [K 5.1.18] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1.
Question Profanity Filter
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?
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:

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.
