I just noticed, when trying to edit a post to add a url containing a "plus sign", that the forum software seems to be filter it.
It does it not only in a url (using the forum tags) but even in the regular text. You can use the html entity to "make" it work, but I could have sworn this wasn't the case in the past.
Note that I only find this when "editing" and existing post; the plus sign (+) works fine when the post is initially entered.
Has anyone else encountered this?
this was added as an edit after the initial post was saved:
(The above line had four plus signs separated by spaces!)
The following line was entered using the html entity for the "plus sign":
+ + + +
2nd edit - Confirms that editing a post removes all + signs in the post! - end result of tests: IF you edit your post, all your + will be removed from the post (I used the entity to make this entry and correct the post).
