Profanity Filter

Want to keep your submissions free of offensive and vulgar language? This plugin will scan each field of the submission and replace any profane words with asterisks. Here's an example of what you'll see in your submissions list:

Submission with profane word

If you're using other plugins, such as Email Notification or Slack, they will also use the filtered values shown above.

Plugin configuration

In addition to Postform's profane word detector, which may not cover all the words you consider profane, you can add custom words that should be censored. In the example configuration below, "dummy" will be replaced with "*****" if it is included in any of the submission fields.

Configure Plugin

Don't want to see submissions with profane language in your inbox at all? Check the "Mark submission as spam" checkbox to send the submission directly into spam.
