Hear ye hear ye! grin

I need to know who you are, if you have had problems pasting, quoting, or both, and what browser you are using.

You see, I can't reproduce the problem. I can paste and quote just fine. So, I need your help.

Thanks!

Still a problem!

I use safari

If you keep your finger on a vowel of the touchscreen it gives you the option of the letter with various accents.

These are what seems to not post.

Is everyone using a tablet or touch screen, or does it happen on other platforms, as well?

I use a laptop computer, but it has Windows 10 so I can use it as a touch screen. I typically don't use the touch feature.

I haven't tried it in a while but copied and pasted from another site to a lengthy post that simply came up blank. Was using Win10 with MS Edge.

I'll make a point of trying it again.

I've run across it myself. Through testing various portions of the paste, I'm able to determine that it happens with pasted double quotes and pasted single quotes. This doesn't mean that it doesn't happen with other characters.

Still looking...

I had a problem with a word with a special letter - naïve to be exact.

When I switched to "using HTML and UBBCode" it appeared ok, not with just UBBCode.

So, if I type in double quotes """"""" or a single quote '''''' - everything works fine. Which means the issue isn't with quote characters itself, which means they are still being handled properly by the program and the database (they are being properly escaped).

However, there are different character sets used to represent the characters we see (it's how they are encoded behind the scenes and used by the computer).

My initial hypothesis when I heard about these problems is that the new server has an installation of MySQL set to an incorrect character set, whereas the previous server did not.

This is now my working theory, as it has been tested and not disproven...yet other hypotheses have been disproven.

According to my theory, everything observed can be explained.

1.) The Preview works precisely because it doesn't use the database. Nothing is stored in the database, so the server loads the composed post in the preview screen without issue. Because all browsers understand the character set in use, you see it as per normal.

2.) When "Submit" is clicked, though, it goes to the database, which doesn't recognize the character codes for the quotes, and basically chokes on them. It doesn't store any part of the post.

I'm still investigating, but I'm pretty confident in this answer.

That's weird, you have two fadas there cut and posted from google translate but if I try to put an accent over a character using the touch pad options it doesn't display.

Bhain mé úsád as an bhrabhsálaí tsiombail i MS Word

(Use Google translate for the words, but entered in Word)

It won't let me edit it however - I need to copy & re-paste. Also, not 100% sure what the Irish actually says blush.

The key to the symbols showing up, however, is to switch to "using HTML and UBBCode" in the Markup box.

I'm not entirely sure what the Irish means either - something about using MS word symbols in the browser ??? :lol

How do I

I was trying to say that I inserted the characters with the MS Word symbol browser. Maybe some things don't translate well to Irish...

To switch the markup, below the editing box on the left it says "using UBBCode" - click on that and select "using HTML and UBBCode"

I wonders if your servings are different because you have admin privileges?

I don't have the option to change my HTML/UBBCode. It just tells me HTML is disabled, UBBCode is enabled.
