  • Censor options and/or hidden smilies?

    Here's what I'm trying to accomplish... whenever somebody types in a censored word I want to replace the text with a single image. So if if I censor the word "whatever" then "whatever" would be replaced by a single image.

    With that in mind does anybody know if it's possible to either....

    (a) Change the censor options to replace the words list with an image instead of the normal 1-to-1 text character substitution method.

    (b) Add smilies that are hidden. That way I can add a smilie with the phrase being "whatever" and that then will turn into the image.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    Doing this with the censorship option requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however can try searching or asking for help with this over at www.vbulletin.org.

    You could probably do this using Replacements though.

      So there is no stock way of achieving it currently?

      I'll check out the replacements to see if that'll handle it.

      Thanks

        No, as I said that requires modifying the code.

          Actually, you didn't say that it couldn't be done stock, just that if it was done through the censorship option then it would require code changes, etcetra, without addressing whether hidden smilies were an option or not.

          But... the replacement idea works. I just tried it as an experiment and it'll work through adding a new smilie with a generic name and then using replacements to change the text to the generic name.

            Sorry, I thought it was clear that this:

            Doing this with the censorship option requires modifying the code.
            Meant that this was not a 'stock' option. Just to clarify, there is no 'hidden smilie' option in vB, nor is there a way to replace a censored word with an image.

            Glad the Replacement worked though.
