Greek turns to gibberish in miscellaneous settings


The last two times that I have edited something in my Control Panel my location has been automatically altered to this: ���������¬���¹���¿

Of course it doesn't show all of that when I post but it shows part of that and then I have to go back and redo my location.

This last time I had changed my signature picture. The time before I had check marked something in a different part of the control panel.

Re: Control Panel issue


It showed that in the address field of your browser? emoticon

I tried to reproduce it just now in Firefox and Chrome, including adding your signature to one of my test accounts, but couldn't get it to do anything strange. Can you think of any more details?

Re: Control Panel issue


Ah, now it makes sense, and I'm able to reproduce it consistently. Basically, it's submitting the Greek properly, but when you go back into your miscellaneous settings, it's putting gibberish in that field instead of the Greek.

I'll let Thor know, and also move this over to the Bugs forum after changing the subject line for search purposes.

Edit to add: It will also do this with Chinese, and I'm sure anything else that uses non-Latin-derived characters.

Re:


This is happening on most fields where the user is trying to use the extended character set LG, The users signature will accept it if you change everything in the signature at once but will break things up as described here if you just try and edit one or two links in the signature. You can see what I mean if you look at Erika's or my own siggy (just don't touch anything on Erika's or she will lock up the coffee pot)...

Re: Greek turns to gibberish in miscellaneous settings


You're welcome Susa, You ran into the same bug that had Erika panicking the other day but back then we thought it was just a glitch on the difference between mobile devices and full featured PC's (obviously we were wrong).

You're welcome LG, It really is the same bug discovered first by Erika I think (Global staff can see the first report ,offset=1200#post279075]here)...

Thanks, Rick. I sent that link to Thor just now, so he'll know what other types of characters to watch out for when he fixes it. He would probably already know it affects more than just the location field, but I mentioned that, too, just in case.
