    Admin,

    Yes, it is set to English (UK).

      Sorry, I've no idea, then. You could try US English, but I doubt that will make a difference. Maybe someone else with an iPad can check this out.

        Spent most of the morning researching this. This due to some incompatibility with iOS and the Forum software. The remedy is to
        turn off Smart Punctuation on the ipad Settings --> General --> Keyboard --> Smart Punctuation

          Let's see what happens at my end.

          I can't, it doesn't, Yamaha's.

          Edit: that's done the trick. Thank you so much, Admin, for your time and effort in resolving this issue

            Also in UK but running Windows 8.1.

            Error occurs in all browsers Chrome Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit) , Firefox 64.0 (64-bit), Opera 57.0.3098.110.

            Dump of html inspected with Winhex shows that apostrophes are being sent as three bytes 0xE2 0x80 0x99.

            Browsers are interpreting each byte as the relevant display character -

              Seems that including 0xE2 character in text causes server to truncate rest of post - post displayed correctly in preview.

              Rest of post was 'Header sent by chrome is :-'

              There were 9 headers sent:

                Thank you. I don't profess to know what you are talking about - way above my head! Thankfully Admin has found a remedy.

                  Evidently, the same is happening for me. I'm using OS-X 10.10.x, and the Google Chrome browser mentioned above. However, it's not only on mobile devices, but also on laptops. I guess I just can't use apostrophes in my posts.

                  Probably better for my grammar anyway!

                    The fix is the same. Turn off Smart Punctuation. It's causes the use of the curly open and close quotes and apostrophes instead of the common plain ones.

                    My understanding is that there's something wrong with the way Apple sends those characters that the current version of the software doesn't handle. It's slated to be fixed in the next version of the Forum software.

                  The problem is caused by the wrong character set being specified to the browser. The character set is being sent as windows-1252. When the character set is overridden in the browser to UTF-8 the display is correct.

                  ... using the old ISO-8859-1 character set prevalent in vBulletin 3 and vBulletin 4

                  ps: tested on Windows 8.1 not iPad or IOS

                    Thanks. Yes, that's part of the problem, but not the apparently the entire one. Working on it.

                  Admin,

                  Not nearly so disruptive as the apostrophe problem, but I have now found that all text is deleted after use of the letter 'o' with an umlaut (which can produced on my iPad by hovering over 'o'). Smart Punctuation remains disabled. Might be worth a mention to the developers for the next version of the forum software but probably not worth a lot of your time now. I am sure there are more important issues.

                    Smart Punctuation is disabled on my laptop as well. Today, my first post was truncated after the apostrophe, and I had to re-type my post. However, in the several posts after that one, everything posted--apostrophe or not. It's quite a strange phenomenon--especially since it's intermittent. Best of luck solving it (I'm on iMac, OS-X, Chrome).

                    Michael

                    P.S. After writing this post, guess what, it was truncated due to a special character on the Mac keyboard.

                      I'll probably take the easy way out and spell Bohm without the umlaut, as here.

                      My apostrophe problem seems to be resolved and has not recurred but it does seem that the forum software has compatibility problems with special characters on Mac keyboards.

                        This is the same problem. It has been addressed by the software developer in the next revision.

                      Hi Admin,

                      does this article provide any clues - more info here.
