When I used the Back button there to try again, the screen rolled back to my post, but the Post button was frozen.

The "\x92" character is a character that isn't supported by the current database encoding. Make sure you're using a regular apostrophe instead. I can convert the database to support that later, but it will take a bit of time.

Jackie that's what I meant when I said the error messages were arbitrary. Sometimes it works and then it doesn't

I'm hoping Michael is able to replicate the error and fix it.

Oh what has happened to my personal signature? what are those strange letters - at the start of " you are amazing " and  " I surround myself? and before " anon? " they are not there when I go into my profile, nor have I altered anything...so where did they spring from?  ???

Something must have gotten messed up in the transfer. You can fix it by going into your profile and editing your signature.

Also I'm going to be out of town tomorrow (Monday) and most of Tuesday but will try to check in from my phone from time to time.

Oh it wont even let me come back to modify my above post...message comes up it has already been posted...How strange, it would allow me to modify this post but not the above post....

Rammel...we should be seeing just quote signs, "  " before and after each sentence...

Oldiesmann...this is strange, just one of the strange signs is now showing up in my profile signature but not the other two , weren't before...I am now going to attempt to get rid of it in my profile...

Edited: yes that one has gone but the other two aren't showing so I cant delete them until they show up....hope you are all following this? as even I cant make much sense of it either...seems everything has taken on a mind of its own...a kindof, will it or wont it...or quoting Angelface " revolving "

Vanilla, I managed to change the " at the beginning of your second quote but the end " would not bulge!

Michael for that last strange symbol, it said:


Incorrect string value: '\x9D ~ An...' for column 'signature' at row 1

Line: 546

Note: It appears that your database may require an upgrade. Your forum's files are currently at version SMF 2.0.15, while your database is at version 2.0.11. The above error might possibly go away if you execute the latest version of upgrade.php.

I had the most awful time trying to post in the new Soda Shoppe page.

Database Error

This message kept appearing and even after erasing my post and trying something else it kept saying: you already posted!  Maddening - especially early in the wee hours of morning.

Michael, can you find and fix???  I know it is puzzling...  Thanks!

Sorry Shoppers, only one joke this time as it would not accept any of the others I tried.

Above even with no apostrophes.  I did have quotation marks but took them out and it still would not in Bosom Buddies.  I tried here, and then took those punctuation marks out and I will see if it posts here.

I did some work on the database and I think it's fixed now, but I still have no idea what the problem was. I re-imported all the old messages from the other server and I still got an error when trying to do something with the database, so I'm not sure where the problem was. I had to hack things up a bit to get past that point but it should be working now without any errors.

I have had a problem twice today. I posted a comment, went to correct it and wasn't allowed to. It gave me a red message posting the message area was blank! If I canceled, it went back to the previous unedited post. The only way to correct was to copy the corrected message, use the remove message feature, then open a new reply box and post the corrected message there!

Is that when you clicked the go back arrow instead of the modify button?

I don't remember, however, probable as I generally only use modify when I'm coding.

That same issue happened just now when I was using modify in a B&T post so I do not believe it matters.

Next time it happens copy or take a screenshot of the error message you get so I can see what's going on
