I've set up a few bad word filters that automatically change some character strings, but I suspect it's not covering all of them. Try it and see.

FYI, some useful explanation from our hosting company.. (paraphrased)

Mayor


In your forum you have the WYSIWYG editor enabled allowing the posting of HTML content.

The problem with posting HTML content is that if someone copies and pastes from a different source then the encoding is also copied and pasted as well.

This means that if you copy and paste a non ASCII characters like a formatted quotation mark then the encoding of the original page is also pasted.

As there are 100's of different encodings it would be almost impossible to detect the formatted quotation mark and convert it to the encoding used by the forum.

The only way around this would be to disable the WYSIWYG editor, but then you would also not be able to copy and paste HTML in to the forum.

The WYSIWYG editor is intended to allow forum users to format their posts, but the formatting available is very basic to prevent the forum being hijacked by malicious code such as malware.

The forum is designed for basic formatting as this is all that is needed within the majority of forums. The forum has not been designed for the copy and pasting of HTML from other web pages as this is not usually permitted in most forums as the copy and pasting of other web pages often breaches copyright.

Most forums will not allow copy and pasting from other websites as Google will rank you lower for duplicate content and if they have DMCA report against copied material on another websites will remove that websites from their listings.

Many websites will intentionally obsticate content on their websites to intentionally cause issues when copy and pasting to other websites. This is done to cause both formatting errors like what you are getting and also so they can use bots to find and locate websites using their content in order to take legal action against those websites.

One prime example of this in the topic you list to is one of your members copy and pasting from the Daily Telegraph and the formatting of the copy and pasted text not being correctly formatted. This is because the Daily Telegraph will obsticate their content to prevent such copy and pasting of their copyrighted content.

I would advise being watchful of what you allow copy and pasted on your forum as we have been served take down notices by solicitors/lawyer firms a number of times in relation to content that has been copied from other sources.

Just read the above. Simple question for the Mayor and the hosting service:

 how is it that prior to the "upgrade" the ASCII character formatting wasn't an issue?

Thumbs Up Yes 3BM I did plus ran the ante malware software to be safe, and all is good now.

I sent the screen shot to my son who is a pc wizz and he said it was probably because TBV have a very weak server. But we all knew that.
