I am just a beginner in Geeklog installed through http://www.softaculous.com. How can I stop my user from using abusive language word on my (forum) cms site. Please help me!

I'd ask the users what they think how the situation can be improved.

There are 3 ways

1) Add words to the Censor (found in the Configuration under Miscellaneous). This will still allow the post while putting a replacement text over the word.

2) Use the SpamX plugin. Edit your personal blacklist and add words you do not want to appear in a post. If they do the post will be marked as spam and not saved.

3) Human Moderation. Setup a sticky topic in the forum with some rules. Tell users if they violate he rules they will be banned from the forum or site.
