    Yes well done Paul, I think I suggested it'd take 3/4 times longer than expected, in that regard IT is very like working on old cars!

    An interesting little bug.
    It appears that in many historical posts, where people have used apostrophes, they are being replaced by a symbol as below.

    Season�s greetings

    Not vital but some posts are riddled with
    �. Is this post similarly ‘impacted’.
    It looks ok as I type.

    Hi Paul,
    Many thanks for effort and your time spent getting the website/forum up and running again, it is greatly appreciated, and is a something that I have no knowledge on how to do myself.

    Steve, I can see a diamond with a white question mark within it, is that what you are referring to?

    Exactly that!

    Seems to be historical posts only.

    Hi Steve,
    Season's greetings to you too.

    Apostrophe catastrophe and other punctuation marks disasters.

    Generally speaking these problems are caused by cutting and pasting from another program like word. Typing it in the forum should be ok. Hyphens – can also give problems.

    Throughout my career I have been dogged by problems like this. I still shiver thinking about my time in a German bank trying to get umlauts to work properly.

    Thanks to everyone for all your support.
    Paul

    This will be a character encoding issue with either the software, database or web server. You will find that one of those has been setup with a different encoding to that originally used.

    I have noticed this issue when posting on the forum from my Apple tablet. So I have to resort to the old ways :-). Peter.

    Season’s Greetings was a copy and paste from one of your posts. Do you type them in word first. I don’t, I have used an iPad for years with no obvious character problems, and it’s only since this update that my eyes were drawn to what seems to be a problem due to the current changes.
    Is it possibly an indicator of a bigger issue?

    I note other people’s comments.
