I had a Mac and use my iPad and Safari has ALWAYS had problems here. So I used Chrome on my pc if I needed to do source code. And Safari STILL has problems most notably when dealing with pics or trying to edit a post (still have to do tricks) to get it to work most of the time with the editor.

If I switch my test forum to Zeta, copy and paste that source code and update it...this is what I get. When I switch the forum back to Classic...I get the same thing.

Thank you! That could well be the problem. 

We did solve this with him a while back - I still have the Swedish characters hanging around on a start page in one of my many test forums.  

Might be that he used a different browser. 

tried it - it DON'T work…..
on the "Control/Forum Customization" site it show's up correct….
but when i after that check up the Forum Start-page it show's up the "funny" way…..
i use Google …..an' also tried (since you asked) even Google Chrome….
same negative result….
BUT….i don't give up……there's MAYBE someone that know the magic answer….

when i use the swedish letter's on the forum i host,
it's show's up correct…..so on forum it work's perfect…..
MIGHT be something in the code in "source"…….
a friend here in sweden said that i must use:
<html lang="sv">

on first html tag and then

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

in the header


tried that but even that didn't work
 

You're a biker...of course you're not gonna give up!

As an aside...an invite to my forum (H-D Tech) if you want. We solve problems there, too.

As I said, this Start Page/Welcome Page thing works off a different platform than Delphi Forums does. What its rules are...I have no idea. That it works for me and not you...baffles me. Maybe Delphi Forums can bring this thing into the fold like they did with the PM cluster****! Maybe a comment in the New Features/Wish List saying, "I wish $#|t worked for me!" :)

 

[edited for speling]

Hello - this works fine for me using Bountyman's method. http://forums.delphiforums.com/adultchat/messages

EDITING TO ADD: Hold on - I'm going to post you easy to follow directions so if you want to try this again yourself (or your host does) you won;t need to add me to your controls. It will take me a few minutes to compose them so if you show up before I post again, just hold your horses lol

***************

If your host is fine with this idea ask him to grant me Assistant status and I can go in and update your Start page and then he can remove the Assistant flag.
