Exclusions for some pages of sites

Open the file "custom_config.php" from directory /plugins/system/antispambycleantalk There are lines:

Exclusion for URL:

// Exclude urls from spam_check. List them separated by commas

private $cleantalk_url_exclusions = '';

Exclusion for fields:

//Excludes fields from filtering. List them separated by commas

private $cleantalk_fields_exclusions = '';

For example: If you need to except these URLs:

  • example.com/some/thing
  • example.com/some/one
  • example.com/some/body

You should add this:

private $cleantalk_url_exclusions = 'some';

Make note, that you can add multiple URLs separated by commas:

private $cleantalk_url_exclusions = 'Url1','Url2','Url3';
