Full Version: POST filters "poker"
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I have a simple form setup that allows visitors to submit text which is then scanned for key words ...

http://word-inspector.poldings.com

If I enter the word "poker" in a sentence or just by itself, the POST filtering removes all content for that field.

If I enter the word "piker" or "pokes", it's accepted fine.

Basically, var_dump($_POST) shows empty if I enter the word "poker".

This is built using CI v3.0.1.

There must me a third-party filter or regex installed that is picking up spammy words like "poker" ... but I can't find it.

Anyone else have this problem?

This could also be outside of CI. A hosting company could have installed some filter to do that. Are you running this on a loacl machine that you control? Or on a hosting?

If on a hosting try installing it locally to see if ths is the same.

Interesting.

It is remotely hosted with Clook. I will check with them.

Thanks for the pointer.
It turns out the host did have a set of filters in place for certain word types and that's what prevented the form being processed.

Thanks for your help.
