Default Problem posing a certain character

I've been experiencing a problem making posts with a certain character in it.

The major culprit being the English pound sign, which for obvious reasons I can't write here as the software will cut the post off at the exact point where the character first appears.

Maybe someone could look into this for me.

Thanks and I know, I took the plunge one day and changed over to IP.Board...

... only to find it had the bugs in other places. LOL

My 'View new Posts' doesn't work in their newest version. Looks like it was 'overfixed'.

You're welcome.I'm trying to find more info on Vbulletin so I can better manage the forums.I still get that stupid missing security token error when I try to delete old useless posts.I been trying to clean up old post and it get frustrating having to go through and delete the first topic of every post in order to remove an old thread.

I don't have access to the core forum software to make changes and updates.When it comes to these issues I have to pass it along to ricemaster.I hope he can get the help to keep these problems taken care of.If not,we may loose the forum.

OK. Though that being said, running a forum is an effort and takes a fair bit of time, especially if you don't have that much experience doing it (not referring to you tiny).

Updates, yes, quite important, especially if there are actual functional issues but then, they do require paying for. LOL

I am not sure I understand the 'lose the forum' sentence. As far as those charater issues are concerned, I did post a workaround, maybe a bit of a pain but at least the way members don't have their post cut off. Rest asured, it takes more then a few software glitches to make me abandon a forum outright.

Unfortunately, I am unable to offer any theoretical help for the VBulletin software as we are using IP.Board where at least I could give a short list of instructions to follow sorting certain issues out but it is unlikely to be anywhere near the same structure as what I have experience off, also, if ricemaster was up to scratch on his software, he might feel I am being a little intrusive, admins can be a funny lot and I should know, I am one of them. LOL.

Thanks for keeping us in the loop anyway, tiny. Much appreciated and I think you are doing a very good job here.

Thanks.

Loose the forum statement, was a statement I was basing on our current software about to be out of date.I lurk on the Vbulletin and 4. something is out.This forum is still based on 3.8.So far there is some support on the forum and some updates to be had.I am new to forum software, but I had moderated on a couple other forums.This is my first stint as an admin.I am trying to learn the software that I have control over and try to master it.If I could just make money from forum software,I'd be set.Got nothing else to do since I am stuck at home.

TD: I had a message from another German on the forum and lo and behold, half his message went the same way as has happened to me a few times, ie. cut short after using a German Umlaut, you know the letters with the two dots over the top but there are others as well.

This is just to enquire where we stand on this, it's been 5 month since you last replied and since the problem persists, Ricemaster hasn't managed to sort it out yet. Maybe time for a reminder?

Thanks and have a great weekend.
