WP Content Filter is a plugin for WordPress sites that can block out all profanity, swearing, abusive comments and any other keywords of your choice. It is free and it is compatible with WordPress version 2.6 and above.
Plugin Features and Options:
- Can select which sections of your WordPress site to filter for specified keywords, including: Blog post content, Post title (including recent posts sidebar widget), Post comments (including recent comments sidebar widget), Post tags, and Tag Cloud. For sure the most useful section is the comments section, where you can usually find abusive words;
- Enter keywords to search for, each separated by a comma (each word has to be 3 characters or longer).
- Keywords found in site content are replaced by wild card characters (default is '*', other wild card characters can be set).
- Choice of filter output. There are three choices available: first character retained, all characters 'wild carded', or first AND last letter retained. For example, the keyword "insult" would be replaced with either i*****, ******, or i****t. Compared to previous version, the flagged keywords which are included in whole words can now be ignored, as in example: if you got the word "oni" flagged as a keyword, the word "monitor" will now be ignored and will appear as "monitor", instead of displaying "m***tor" like in previous version.
- Keywords can also be filtered using case insensitive or case sensitive option (the default is set at "case insensitive"). For example, the word "monitor" will be retained, even it is spelled "MONITOR", "monitor", "MoNiToR", "MoniToR" etc
For the safety of your site, there is a setting which preserve current options in case the plugin is deactivated. When you will reactivate it, it will reload its default or previous settings.
