Strange signs in forum

Post by ncc1502 »

Perhaps a bit ofline, but when i read articles i often see some strange signs (I marked tham Fat):


......... from the same port! The ‘Enable’ has been .................................. another Port in the ‘C’ code.

Do i need to adjust something in my browser (IE7) to get this right, or did something go wrong and dit the postings get scrambled?

When we updated the forum software a few weeks ago, certain characters (basically non-Roman characters such as Á, ö, ñ, etc.) did not convert properly. We have tidied-up a few of the posts, but it is a big job to go through the whole forum and fix all occurrences.

If there are particular posts you would like us to fix, then please post a link to these posts here and we'll try to sort them out.

Also I believe there is general corruption of some pictures ( http://www.matrixmultimedia.com/mmforum ... =28&t=6857 )and at a guess, some normal text.

Hello,

Yes sorry about the picture corruption. This was due to a seamless upgrade of the forum software not going seamlessly.

If you still have the source images then you should be able to edit your post and reupload the images. I know this is a pain and I am very sorry for this.

I have been going through any posts I find with the strange characters and removing them if they are particularily bad. Hopefully I can find a way of doing this automatically across the entire forum.
