If you’ve ever wanted to censor certain keywords on your WordPress site then you may have used a solution such as our Content Censor plugin, which does this for you automatically. There are several other plugins available to help protect your site against profanity each with different options and features.
The most important feature though is to be able to protect your site content against any unwanted words or phrases. However, this may not be enough depending on where the unwanted content is located.
Usually, flagged keywords are removed or replaced when found anywhere in your content. This isn’t good news if the location happens to be inside a link URL or a path to an image. In these cases the result will most likely be broken links and images not displaying.
For peace of mind you need to use a plugin that pays special attention to HTML tags and attributes.
Fortunately you don’t have to worry about this with Content Censor. We’ve just released an update (v0.5) which includes an option to ignore all HTML tags and attributes. This means that no tags will be scanned for censored keywords and so your HTML links and images will remain completely intact!
As you can see from the screenshot above the test keyword ‘apple’ appears throughout the HTML including inside a link URL AND an image path.
With the new ‘Ignore HTML’ option enabled you can clearly see that the main content is still protected but the HTML attributes are not affected when they contain a flagged keyword! Take a look at the video below for a demo of this new feature in action!
