Just given it a quick go on our test server and it looks good. The new big filter list box is great, finally i can use my big bad word list! Also being able to see the banned message will make dealing with issues much simpler. User status filtering is also working as advertised. (win2k3,jm2.3.0.b1)
Two small would be nice ifs spring to mind:
Be able to mask and send a message back to the user. So user A sends ‘‘Dog off’’ , user B receives ‘’*** Off’’, the admin receives ‘‘User A is up to something’’ and then user A receives ‘’ Your last message was filtered, please read the school rules now’’ etc.
For the admin contact who receives the notifications to be an email and not an IM headline. Once alot of students use this I’'m sure the alerts will flood in, being email based would make handling issuse easier.
Also a quick question on regular expressions, assuming ‘‘dog’’ is banned:
\bdog\b dog walk becomes *** walk
\bDog\b dog walk becomes Dog walk
(?i)\bDog\b dog walk becomes *** walk
??? d*g walk
is there an expression that checks for matches even if a character is replaced by a symbol so for example d*g,d_g,d!g would get filtered.
Many many thanks for the update. I’'ll more this over to our main server on Monday and let you know how i get on, it is 2.2.2 so a little different.
