Profanity Filter

Turning the Profanity Filter On will replace words in the chat window that exist in the default profanity filter list (and/or the custom profanity filter list) with %%%% when the words are distributed to other users by the chat server. Enabling this feature from the Admin Console enables this feature only for the room into which the admin user is logged in, and will override any Site-level setting. Turn the Profanity Filter Off to prevent words from being filtered by the chat server.

 

The web-based Service Administration Pages may also be used to enable the Profanity Filter for all rooms under a Site ID.

 

Shout Filter

Turn the Shout Filter On to replace all capital letters in a user's chat message with lower case letters when they are distributed to other users by the chat server.  Enabling this feature from the Admin Console enables this feature only for the room into which the admin user is logged in, and will override any Site-level setting. Turn the Shout Filter Off to allow chat messages that consist of all capital letters to appear in the chat window.

 

The web-based Service Administration Pages may also be used to enable the Shout Filter for all rooms under a Site ID.
