I don’t know Roberts well enough to know whether he’s putting in the effort or not but I think it’s safe to say that for whatever reason he’s not been worth the money we’ve allegedly paid for him.

And no, I'm not suggesting tsh is odd!

It’s an iPhone thing.

I think if you post a message on iPhone then the punctuation gets turned into weird symbols.

This is from my iPhone so presumably will also show up with the same issues. It’s a particular issue with apostrophes so this sentence should start crazily.

Oh and I am odd smiling smiley

Whatever it is it makes reading some posts a real chore.

Is it perhaps a browser thing? Are you using Safari or another browser, TSH?

Using Safari so yes it may be that.

I'm also using Safari and I don't get the hieroglyphics. The plot thickens.

It is very frustrating and tends to make me give up reading posts.

It's definitely the source device using encoding that isn't recognised. I can achieve the same effect by using what my old iPad offers as smileys but I know this board doesn't render them. Why this should be extended to simple punctuation, I have no idea. Maybe it's another way for Apple to "help the customer".

I should have added it's only this site I notice it on so it's probably more to do with its antiquity.

What also annoys me is people who can't use the quote function properly. Again, it makes it not worth bothering with.

It's only TSH. Must be summarised with his setup. Not iPhone, obvs - or it would be a lot more prevalent.

Annoying, as he is a good poster!

I meant the quote function I've just used above - I'm not sure RR is referring to the same thing.

Regarding apostrophes, yours appear as a 3 letter string of gibberish. It's not just you but you're definitely the most obvious on this site.

Sorry!

If DOK or anyone else can tell me how to stop it I would be most grateful! Otherwise its a life without apostrophes for me.

Perhaps its a keyboards thing? Do Apple allow you more than the standard keyboard?

If we make a list of the posters that this affects, we (or somebody from rugbynetwork.net) may be able to work out what they all have in common.

Test.

I don’t suppose this is any better?

Don't know if this thread would help

Some web sites have problems with web apps because the iPad pro iOS 11 keyboard does not have a flat apostrophe ( ' ) (and because it's just ( ) instead).

Answer: Settings > General > Keyboards > turn off Smart Punctuation

Having had a quick look on various help pages it appears to be a coding problem so nothing to do with the phone or keyboard settings.

I assume that means it needs to be fixed by someone at Sports Network so for now I will just not use apostrophes.

Thanks for everyone for trying to help me stop typing gibberish (beyond the normal gibberish of course).

I didn't want to but I hadn't any choice.

Any better?

Yeah it does seem to be an issue that quite a few sites have had. It is fine on other message boards I use which probably means its a coding issue. Thanks for trying DOK.

I have smart punctuation enabled and yet I dont have the apostrophe problem (maybe Im an iOS version behind or ahead of you).

Only important thing though is that its fixed for you. All power to the DOK.

Betcha the iPhone is implementing the encoding correctly (according to some ISO standard) and that rugbynetwork sits on a windoze platform that doesnt know what to do with it.

Now, is there any rugby on today .....?

Not as annoying but your apostrophes show up as Black question marks on my screen. All very odd.

And now that I've turned smart punctuation off. Has that help'd at all?

To tell you the truth, I've no idea what smart punctuation is supposed to do. I had no idea it existed or that it was enabled on my phone.
