Zimbra Community's Word Replacement Filters tab gives you a place to list bad or forbidden words that you want removed. By default the Word Replacement Filters tab comes prepopulated with a list of bad words. In this tab, you have options to:
- Leave the offensive terms by themselves in the list - which will trigger a rule in the the Spam Blocker
- Add an inoffensive replacement or placeholder after each offensive term - will cause the system to replace the bad term with the substitute term you provided.
For the word replacement filter to work, the Post Settings page Enable Word Censorship setting must be enabled. The setting is covered as part of the Post Settings article, but for convenience it is repeated below.
- Navigate to Control Panel > System Administration > Site Administration > Site Configuration > Advanced Configuration > Post Settings.
- Set the Enable Post Censorship option to Yes.
- Click Save.
To manage word replacement filters:
- Navigate to Control Panel > System Administration > Site Administration > Content/Site Security > Word Replacement Filters.
- Search the existing list for your desired term. If it isn't listed, click into the text field and type it.
- To set up a replacement or placeholder word for a term, add a space beside the bad word and type the replacement there. A common replacement is a placeholder such as *** to indicate that an offending word has been replaced.
- Click Save to apply the settings.
