I have a file with a list called wbanned.txt which contains forbidden words. I want every message sent to be read and if it contains one of the forbidden words in the txt list (Every word is on a new line from list) to be deleted.
I tried something but all it does is delete it only if it contains the last word in the list.
@commands.Cog.listener() async def on_message(self, message): try: file = open('./resources/wbanned.txt') all_lines = file.readlines() for x in range(len(all_lines)): if all_lines[x] in message.content: await message.delete() except Forbidden: pass
word banned kick
So the program must accept this sentence: “This is example 1” But if you type: “This a banned member” this sentence need to be deleted.
.readlines() includes the trailing newlines, so you need to
Code(with some cleanup for best practices):
@commands.Cog.listener() async def on_message(self, message): try: with open('./resources/wbanned.txt') as file: for line in file: if line.strip() in message.content: await message.delete() except Forbidden: pass
(Directly iterating over a file iterates line by line the same way
.readlines() does, but without creating an unnecessary list)
