Word Replace

Last Update: May 23, 2014

This addon is 100% hooks based requiring no source edits to install.

Works with ElkArte: 1.0


This is a simple addon, it’s task is simply to mimic the word censoring, with a couple of differences:

  • members cannot disable it
  • replacement applies only to text that passes through parse_bbc. That means for example message bodies, but not subjects.

These differences make the addon useful to replace words with ads or add definition to abbreviations, etc. All the things that once upon a time were done abusing the censoring feature.
