I have recently been working on word censoring patterns to block some Finnish language expressions.
In the process, we discovered something I consider as a bug. I can reproduce it with censored words and censored patterns. Steps:
- Go to /admin/site_settings/category/posting.
- Scroll down and locate censored words and censored patterns.
- Censor something if you already haven’t.
- Open editor and write something nasty. You will see it censored like this: ■■■■■.
- Type a closing bracket ). Every censored word which precedes the bracket will show!
The closing bracket appears for instance in the common smiley
:) which is converted to the respective emoji of course. So if you end your post with
:), you can actually type anything you want without any censorship!
If it is not a real bug, feel free to merge these topics.
