Description of problem

Hello there,

It appears that the old administrator(s) wanted to create word censors for modifying scripts and blocking scripts on the forums. It appears one of these word censors ended up disabling the ability to even edit or delete it, and makes the page look as the attached screenshot. I'm able to edit the other word censors by going to the next page, but page 1 is completely disfigured as shown. I would like to fix this issue, as we don't have need of that word censor or modification to any scripts. Is there anything we can do to fix this?

Edit: As you can see, the asterisk is part of the word censor (*).

Hello,

What exactly is the censored word? Just the artisk? If so, maybe it wont remove itself because it really isnt censoring anything. Also sincs there doesnt appear to be a replacement specificed it doesnt have anything to change it to so I dont believe it would censor it at all.

Also may you tell us what exactly happens when you try to edit or remove the censor? Do you get an error message? If so, what is it.

I had no ability to modify it. However, I did find the offending censor, and the problem is now considered solved.

What I did was modify a censor on page 2, since I could not modify the censor that was causing code problems on Page 1 of the Word Censors. When modifying that censor on page 2, I modified the url: ...id=46&... I kept changing that number each time to find the offending censor. I found multiple coding modifications and deleted them. Finally, when I deleted the 46th one, the Page 1 went back to normal and I could see all the rest of the censors that were previously being hid by this coding placed in the Word Censor list.
