    How do I censor a phrase with two words???

    We have the normal one-word censors that are working fine, such as the foul language.

    But I can't seem to get a two word phrase, such as my own name, to come up with the stars.

    I have used {David Copeland} and {David and Copeland} and it does not work.

    Just a shot in the dark, here. Maybe, you can join the two names with a non-breaking space? That would be:  
    Thanks,

      I tried something similar, but it erased thousands of words.

      Anyone else have the answer?

        Can I get some support on this?

          I don't have the answer. Sorry. AFAIK this requires hacking.

            Steve, are you confirming that the Banning Option in the Control Panel is only good for single words and not phrases?? If so, will the new Ver 3.0 have this option??

              The only thing I'm confirming is that I don't know the answer and that I believe this requires hacking. Sorry that wasn't clear.

              And as far as I know this function hasn't changed in vB3. I just tested it and got the same results as with vB2.

                would the exact phrase match not work?

                {cat&nbspdog} ?

                  No, that doesn't work.

                    you'd have to put a ; after &nbsp anyway

                    {cat dog}

                    I thought {cat dog} was supposed to censor "cat dog" in succession, anyway. Apparently, that feature doesn't work as it was supposed to, then, I'm guessing?

                    (I wouldn't know, since I only use the swear filter for misspellings of words that really piss me off }

                      Nobody thought of replacements?

                      Just go to ACP and add a replacement, add the word you want to replace, and then just ad **** as the replacement or something.

                        haha, yes, replacements would work

                        actually, hm. I suppose I should go ahead and use replacements for those misspellings I hate =D

                          one thing i noticed, you can't use something like "jesus" and "Jesus" (capitals) and it will only replace the one you use. but it's better than nothing.

                            Would you please share the steps how you accomplished your goal, using replacements? Thanks.

                              What is the ACP?

                              And what are the steps to doing replacements?

                              Thanks.
