Add-On Type(s)



Banned Phrases extension allows you to forbid the use of certain words or phrases and to specify how those words or phrases should be replaced.

E.g. you may want to forbid using the word “sucks” on your website. Using Banned Phrases extension you can specify the rule that the word “sucks” should be replaced with some other phrase, such as “is bad”.

Banned Phrases extension allows to specify unconditional and conditional rules. The former example is one of unconditional rule. Conditional rules are applied when some condition is met.

E.g. you may specify than on condition the string “suck” is found two rules should be applied:
1) the rule that the word “sucks” should be replaced with the phrase “is bad” and
2) the rule that the word “sucker” should be replaced with the phrase “bad guy”.
