Any chance the tech whiz can now fix the problem of quotation marks being substituted? Should be a VERY BASIC task.

Earlier today the forum was going a bit weird with little punctuation marks. Looks like it has corrected itself though.

Thanks Mayor. Hope the Doggies do everyone proud again this week. Personally hope they smash the AFL's darlings.


Some coincidence there Shawy. I was posting the same detail and didn't see your post.

Example of quotation errors:

Hayward seized three unregistered items from the trainer’s residential property on Saturday afternoon — two 100ml bottles labelled “Before Gallops” and “Clotenol” and a 10ml bottle labelled “HA2”.

The “Before Gallops” bottle was three-quarters full and stewards alleged the trainer admitted using it in an interview with Hayward on Saturday.

Should read:


Hayward seized three unregistered items from the trainers residential property on Saturday afternoon  two 100ml bottles labelled Before Gallops and Clotenol and a 10ml bottle labelled HA2.

The Before Gallops bottle was three-quarters full and stewards alleged the trainer admitted using it in an interview with Hayward on Saturday.

Their response: When you copy and paste from another source the encoding may not be the same as set for your website. Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done regarding different encodings used with different websites. It is best to either not copy and paste or copy to notepad, then copy from notepad to the forum so that only text is copied and not the encoding of the source.

However, the problem appears to be the quotation marks that are slightly off vertical. When you replace them with a basic quotation mark (small vertical) the problem is resolved. I'll ask him if he can simply filter the oblique quotation marks, changing them to basic. Mayor

It's funny, the software that we use to register an issue with them, actually fixes the quotation mark problem, so I can't demonstrate the issue in my response to them, lol. What mechanism is it using there? :) Anyway, I'll wait to hear from them again.

Cheers
Mayor

It's weird because we never had this issue until the upgrade, so obviously something changed. Hopefully it's sorted 👍




That's true. Mayor

While they're fixing that little problem Mayor perhaps you could ask them to perform another minor coding task and make the search default Topic Subject not Message Body  - which essentially doesn't work. That way when I forget to change that option I don't have to kill the whole process in my browser when it spins off into an infinite loop as it so often does now.

Yes I know how to get around it with google but for quick/basic searches it would be nice to use the forum tool without any mucking around.

I'll second that particularly the forgetting part Ouch

Mayor, could you please tell the server company that this is not acceptable from a paid for platform Angry. Fair enough if it was a freebie like so many but crikey, they offer a service, you pay for it & they fail to deliver  to the required standard.

Mayor, has the server been notified of this still ongoing issue? If so could you please remind them to further look into it? Angry

Multiple people have it, with articles from all over, and they don't show up in the preview, only after being posted, if any of that helps.

Yes, they have responded. I'll post the response later. I think it was something like... out of their control what fonts other web pages use and when you copy and paste from them, it replicates the issue. I still have one thing to try... that is, to set it up on the bad word filter list which may automatically change it..
