    iPad input issues

    When posting from an iPad, apostrophes and quotes seem to be converted by the default posting software to question marks. For example the possessive of gift renders as gift?s, which displays after posting on my iPad as gift?s.

    The problem is not your iPad but this website.

      In some online games with chat, phones and iPads do the same thing but worse with many more odd numbers/characters out of place. Phones use different OS than computers, not sure that's the cause but maybe.

        It?s been doing that for the past year or thereabouts. Strangely, you can edit your post, and change all the question marks for the correct punctuation, which will remain corrected in the edited post. But if you add any new punctuation when editing the text, the new text will still use question marks! (I have never bothered to try editing the punctuation for a second time...).

          Maybe that is why Data never used contractions (in the old Star Treks)

            You must be really young. Data didn’t exist in the original Star Trek series!!!

              I have found posting “in plain text” solves the problem. I think there is a way to do this on the site. Maybe by editing and going advanced? But I do it by writing in word, copying, and then pasting as plain text (“press control – shift – Victor.”)

                Play with this in:
                Settings
                General Settings
                Misc. Options


                1. Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing
                2. Basic Editor - A simple text box
                3. Standard Editor - Extra formatting controls

                When posting messages to the forums or other members, there are three interface types available to you. The simplest of these is a simple text box, while the last is a fully-fledged WYSIWYG editor, which allows you to format your text as you want it and see the results immediately.

                Depending upon the capabilities of your web browser, you may not be able to use all of these options. If you experience problems when posting messages, try switching to a different interface type.

                Not sure these setting will fix it but playing with the options will let us know.
