messageProblem with posting to forum - can anybody help?
Posted by Sue 09 December, 2019 11:48

Lemmy has messaged me asking me to post this on the forum as s/he is unable to post.

Can anybody help?

S/he has messaged Admin but hasn't had a reply. S/he is using Windows and Firefox, but is getting this message when s/he tries to post:

A form was submitted in the windows-1252 encoding which cannot encode all Unicode characters, so user input may get corrupted.

To avoid this problem, the page should be changed so that the form is submitted in the UTF-8 encoding either by changing the encoding of the page itself to UTF-8 or by specifying accept-charset=utf-8 on the form element. posting.php

I use Windows and firefox without problem. Has s/he tried running antivirus and malware programme to check her message and system are clean of viruses? Maybe a troublesome cookie has queered the pitch? Not a computer whizz but I find doing a scan at my end can make a difference sometimes. Otherwise maybe others have had a similar message?

We think it's something to do with some code on the site when using macOS with Firefox or Chrome, I forgot to get back to Lemmy about it but when someone here at Forum HQ gets a chance they will look into it.

Thanks, admin.

Hopefully Lemmy will see this. I think s/he can read posts, but can't post.
