Nosto has created an extensive list of bad word variations to help clients create Terms that do not contain any abusive content.

To review or edit this list, go to UGC Settings > Bad Words.

If you would like to add your own Bad Words (for example, words in a different language) then simply click on the Create Bad Word button and complete the table. When adding/editing words on the list, be sure to consider the match strength (Full or Partial).

Ex: the word "butt" as a partial match, would also disable content containing the word "butternut squash".  OR  adding the word "newyear" as a partial-match will also disable content containing "newyearsday".

Alternatively, if you would like to add multiple words at once you can export the bad word list, add your words, and then import the information back into the account.

For any further questions or queries, please send an email to and our support team will get back to you.
