Question about pop-up ad on every page
« on: December 07, 2017, 10:47:16 AM »
Im trying to read the forum today, and there is an ad on the upper right, a little box with KB Featured...Opaque: Scion Saga...

Its on every page, and is making the forums not load at the correct size.

Im using Safari on an iPad running iOS 11

Hmmmm... I see that on my iPad, too.  That's our regular ad space; not sure why it's doing that.  I'll let the site owner know.

Thanks!

Why are my apostrophes turning in to question marks?

Thanks!

Why are my apostrophes turning in to question marks?

iOS 11 automatically uses smart punctuation--curly quotes and apostrophes.  I had to turn that off so as to use plain text here on the forum.  Our forum software can't handle extended characters (like smart quotes).  I realize it's annoying, but we haven't been able to find a fix that doesn't create other issues.

If you want to change this, you can go to It's in Settings | General | Keyboard | Smart Punctuation and uncheck the box.  Or, if you're using the soft keyboard, I understand you can press and hold on the apostrophe key and the straight apostrophe will be one of the options.  If you like the smart punctuation everywhere else, you may want to do that just to fix the punctuation here.  Or create a keyboard shortcut.
