Chat Filter is a profanity filter add-on for Photon Chat applications.
It automatically scans, detects and filters messages that contain swear or curse words. First, go to the management page of your Photon Chat application which is accessible from your dashboard. Agree to the Community Sift terms first to be enable the Chat Filter add-on setup.
Click the "Setup Chat Filter" button and you will be directed to a dedicated page to set up Chat Filter for your application.
Photon Chat filtering is available in two different variants.
It may struggle with usernames as they will show as misspells.
You can prevent this by announcing a user when they enter a room to register their name.
Likewise, you also have the ability to limit the amount of contributions made by identified toxic users as they become non trusted.
This helps decrease churn and it keeps your community engaging while also giving toxic users the opportunity to become positive contributors.
Discard if unavailable Should the Community-Sift backends ever be not available ...
if it is ticked, Photon Chat messages will not be sent, leave unticked if you are okay with messages being returned unfiltered.
Match the Add-On options for your Photon Chat application, "Resource URL", "API Key" and the "Policy ID", with the setup you have in the Community-Sift dashboard. Other options are discussed in the "Common Options" section.
