Still waiting for mikeb to chime in with "Yes!!! FINALLY..." Laughing

Thanks for all the work you've put in, John.....and for continuing to host the Puppy Forums. It's very much appreciated.


Regards,

Mike. Smile

BTW: Just out of curiosity, what's happened to the Flash ad in the top right corner? I believe some people reckoned it gave them occasional rendering/connection problems..?

Subject description: Character encoding
 

JohnMurga, wrote earlier today, 19 Jly 2015,

Basically I have had to hack my way around a couple of issues running the forum software on modern PHP, some to do with code issues, others to do with character encoding.
------------------------------
In case it may be of relevant interest: in Nov 2012 I, Jasper, had a problem (fixed today) with Dillo failing to properly display some characters e.g. the apostophe ‘, double quote marks “” and some accented “foreign” letters.
------------------------------
On 19 Nov 2012 (Burunduk wrote)

Dillo seems to be deceived by the page code:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

The real encoding is utf-8. Firefox is smart enough to ignore the tag
------------------------------
On 20 Nov 2012 (aragon wote)

i've looked into the issue ...

Dillo will only display special chars correct if

a) the charset is set to utf-8 as burunduk mentions
b) special chars are escaped properly (what as far as i see/understand does not happen for the message-body in the forum)

so it seems this is more a phpBB issue, than a dillo issue. Other browser just seem to be more fault-tolerant.

My thanks to John as well. Nobody finds it easy to maintain web sites any more, especially not the U.S. Office of Personnel Management.

And, how about this hack?

Now that the change is over John could change the title to "Shift Happens!"

New server issue? Since the upgrade I haven't received any PM and watched thread email notifications. This includes postings and PMs through July 20 inclusive. Can't say anything conclusive about July 21, so far. Is anyone else getting email notifications?

Thanks for upgrading the forum website.
I visited today to see whether you were back online and instantly noticed the improvement in speed.
Much snappier, this might cause some people to click more links just for the thrill of experiencing the speed and ease of it all. Very Happy

PostPosted: Tue 21 Jul 2015, 09:14    Post subject: Re-tune your email spam filters [SOLVED]  

Since the server upgrade email notification from the forum go into the spam basket of my GMAIL inbox. Before the server upgrade email from murgalinux.com never went into the spam basket.

So people might need to re-tune their spam filters.

It was removed ...

They had not paid out for a long time, but their sponsorship was effectively funding the forum for the last few years. The war chest run out, so it was time to remove the ad and co-host the forum with some of my other stuff, which makes it much cheaper to run Razz

Sorry, I was not expecting that, and it doesn't happen with me ...
But you appear to be correct, I have had a few reports.

Cheers

Ahh. A light dawns...

Fair comment. I must say, I agree with kjdixo, above. The increase in responsiveness is quite astonishing. It was always fairly quick before (at least for me), but now.....it's almost instantaneous.

I like it. Thanks again, John.


Regards,

Mike.

Dear JohnMurga, thank you for hosting this fantastic forum. I think it is one of the best forums online, ever, period!
There are of course some wild speculations from time to time on who you are (your REAL identity! Cool ), but I think the bottom line is that your appearance is very much appreciated. I really wish that you will visit the forum more often., and please comment on things you think we can do better.

however, due to its vital value for puppy community, I would recommend an html dump of whole forum (without, obviously, passwords and other login data that are stored in database) shared via torrent

this html dump, for obvious reasons, can be made only by the forum owner

John. A very sincere 'Thank You' for this forum. I can only echo the sentiments of all the other forum members; this is an excellent example of worldwide cooperation from many different people - and you know who you are! Laughing
A side-effect of the update: on a slow broadband connection, the speed gain is very noticeable.
