    Default Cannot Enter Certain Strings

    I am impressed with the new forum in many ways. It has many features which will take some time getting used to. However, while certain code words give us added flexibility, the forum must at times interpret a substring as a code when it shouldn't. Thus, we must know when and how to avoid these codes.

    When posting in the thread below, I typed in the word "P-a-r-s-e". When it came up posted, it showed up as "P****". I tried editing it but the asterisks still appeared. Is "a-r-s-e" a code word of some sorts?

    Thanks for pointing this out Steve, I have fixed it. That was on the list of censored words installed by the board software nd it does a substring search, so "parse", "parsed", "parser", etc all would have been censored. I fixed it so it does not do a substring match onthat word any more.

    Thanks, Lenny. I was able to edit the posting to remove the asterisks. Also, MANY thanks for allowing the editing of our own posts! This will streamline the threads significantly!
