I’m trying to integrate regular expressions into an already-populated Watched Words list. I use only the “Censored” option. I must be doing everything wrong, and I’ll appreciate any assistance available. Here are the first two challenges I’m facing.
When I make no change except to check “Watched words are regular expressions” and click the green check mark to save that configuration, the word “should” suddenly becomes censored. If I uncheck “Watched words are regular expressions” and save, “should” is allowed again. “Should” is not on my list of 93 words.
When I tried to add regular expressions, an error message is returned. For example, I have a regular expression that I’ve tested and verified using https://regexr.com/ that is designed to censor E-mail addresses, except for staff e-mail addresses.
I check “Watched words are regular expressions”, save, and refresh. I then enter that regular expression in the Watched Words field, and am told, “Sorry, an error has occurred.” Is there a different format for regular expressions I need to be using? I’ve tried it both with and without the open and close / mark.
