Bad Characters on the Board Here

Take a look at this post from the past:

All the characters got messed up with the new board change.
I wonder if this can be fixed without going back and redoing every single
post that uses these chars?

I think it has something to do with that fact that the board is using British English and not US English. phpbb ships with UK-EN and US-EN must be installed manually after you install and setup the board software. Michael knows about this and I assume it will be fixed eventually. No changes until at least Monday.

What a relief. When I saw the subject I was just sure it was about me! I try to be a nice guy, but sometimes my "bad character" shows itself. :grin:

Hi Dave,


He he, sorry about the confusion. Now that you mention it, yeah, it sounds like it could be
referring to some off beat person being a pain in the forum ha ha.
