If your site is being blocked for "sensitive" words, Censortive is for you. This plugin can replace any word or phrase with its graphic equivalent.

How do I mark words in my posts to be converted?

Simply enclose the codeword (as defined in 'codeword.dat') in [* and *]. So if my codeword was 'monkey', I would input [*monkey*] in my post. Upon viewing, [*monkey*] would be replaced with a text-image of whatever it is equal (=) to in the 'codeword.dat' file.

Note: If the example above contains any backslashes (\), please remove them. They are being used as escape characters in this readme file, and are not to be used when marking codewords in your posts.

Can I use special characters, such as for other languages?

For characters with accents or tonal marks, it will largely depend on the font file you’re using and if it supports the characters. For completely different characters, such as Chinese characters or Arabic writing, the answers are more varied. We’ll be working on further functionality in this area in future releases, but currently it’s not supported.

So, where do I get fonts then?

We’ve included one font, a Sans-Serif font in the Libertine family - which is an open source font initiative. We don’t distribute a large selection of fonts with the plugin, as they can be quite bulky, and vary greatly from blog to blog.

To make sure your text-to-images are most closely matched to your blog’s content, just find out what TrueType font your posts are set to display at, and then search your computer for those .TTF files. Once found, simply upload the file to the wp-content/plugins/censortive/fonts/ directory and change the Font File setting in the Censortive options.
