I was originally going to say "it isn't easy designing forum software" and would be VERY INTERESTED in the exact string that made this happen.
Perhaps Mr. Bill would be kind enough to construct a simple notepad file in .txt format and upload it with the single upload routine OR take a camera shot or screen shot of the string that is fooling the software. That way we could cure it.
Bill it's like a browser battle. Every time we think it is right either Firefox, chrome or edge changes something that makes another routine needed and that routine inevitably messes with other routines.
Would take a staff of coders to nail it the first time and we only have like .75 total between Chris and myself, neither one of us making a dime off of it.
And poor Chris doesn't even have a ranger so the info contained on this board is irrelevant to his life at all so he is just doing this for fun when it is fun.
The bummer is, the problem isn't noticed until "post" is invoked and the post is reviewed, and then it's after the fact and it can be more of a bummer if a lot of text is vaporized. What I can do and since something similar to this happened before and I mentioned it (and I wasn't treated abnormally by an arrogant foreign dick, and I'm not referring to you) and it got fixed is, seeing how the problems seem occur when a character is used I can do a screen capture prior to posting if you like, and send it to you in hope that YOU can look at it. You as the preferred contact because not only do you care about resolving problems but it's much easier to deal with a person with some people skills. Thanks.
*Edit: I really would be more than happy to work with you on any of these strange anomaly that pop up here and there, this, in the name of "building a better mouse trap". Surely I'm not the only person using FF and W7Ult, but maybe others have simply said nothing, and in some ways I can't blame them. This, in light of seeing what can happen to people who do speak up..........
