Sorry about the two questions in the same day but this is really bugging me. I have a form which I'm using but of course I underestimated the maturity of the people who use it and I got a lot of people tossing in swear words on the sign up form *sigh*.

I tried adding a word filter but when I added it the filter blocked EVERYTHING, even things that weren't in the @ignore didn't go through. Ugh, I am getting frustrated with this one. Why is it blocking things I'm not asking it to?

if(param()){ my $username = param('username'); $username =~ s/\s+\z//; my $askname = param('askname'); $askname =~ s/\s+\z//; my $update = param('update'); if($username){ if($askname){ if(grep($username, @ignore) || grep($askname, @ignore)) { print "That didn't quite work"; exit; } if($update eq "add"){ if(exists $list{$username}){ print "Username already exists in database.\n"; } else{ $list{$username} = $askname; print "Username was added to our system!<p>\n"; } } elsif($update eq "rem"){ if(exists $list{$username}){ delete $list{$username}; print "Account information was removed from the sy +stem.\n"; } else{ print "Oops, it doesn't appear that username is in + our database.\n"; } } } else{ print "For this to work please add your username.\n"; } }else{ print "Unless your name is null, please go back and fill it in +.\n"; } } print end_html();

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
