Censor Profanity Words Used in Reviews and Questions & Answers
Prevention is better than cure. We bet you do not want the wrong language to appear in either the reviews or the questions & answers, or even both. You may use the profanity filter to help you censor profanity words by enabling it.
Censored words will appear as asterisks (****) on the display widgets or you can hide reviews with profanity entirely.

Enabling The Filter
Head over to Settings - Exclusions:
Adding words to Allow / Deny Lists
Once the filter is enabled, you will be able to override the filter by adding words to the Allow list or Deny list.
*Note: Any words added to the Allow/Deny lists are case-sensitive!
- Allow list: Words added will be excluded from the profanity filter.
- Deny list: Words added will be included in the profanity filter.
Censoring or Hiding reviews entirelyYou have two primary options available for how you handle profanity.
- Censor Profanity Words.
This will result in the word appearing as asterisks (****). The remainder of the review/question content will still display on your widgets.
- Hide Entire Review or Q&A.
