I broke the main thread with a polish character

Postby mario_meissner » 06 Apr 2019, 11:15

Guys, I tried to reference Paweł, a new user, in a post in the main tread, and made it crash due to a probably unsupported Polish character in his name.

I call the admins to fix the post :lol:

Alright guys I fixed the main thread.
Funny how I managed to do it.

I grabbed the URL of the "edit" button, and did a sweep over the post ID numbers until I hit the one of my broken post.
Let the posting continue!

@mario_meissner

Just let me know where should I send the invoice for forum repairs :lol:

You may alternatively use the more cumbersome
[mention][/mention] tags
if you feel like the forum creaks under the UTF-8 pressure :D


Also, obligatory mention: @Paweł
