Forum Still Can't Handle Curly Quotes, Apostrophes, emdashes
« on: March 08, 2019, 09:47:47 am »
It bugs me that this is the only forum that can't seem to handle curly quotes (), apostrophes, and emdashes (). Worse they show up fine in the preview. Since this is a literary site, those characters show up more often. I complained about this years ago.

It shouldn't be rocket science to fix that.

Image handling is also a problem which is taken care of in most forums (big images aren't resized).

    It does seem odd. I've been on various forums over the past fifteen years and I don't recall seeing this particular issue before.

    Most likely an iOS thing. Isnt my iPad grand.  ;)

    Simple fix is to use the foul language filter to substitute properly.
