Hi Everyone,

The forum keeps returning a vague Error in posting... message when I try to post the following: https://dpaste.com/HEMMFYPCA

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I am trying to paste it as a response in the Portage & Programming forum.


Thank you.

dfdx,

That's a copy/paste from your pastebin.

Hi NeddySeagoon,

Apologies, there was an unfortunate typo in my dpaste, but it looks like it's actually working now. So bizarre!.

Let me try posting this actual reply, if it works, I'll close this out.


Thanks!

EDIT:

Now that I look more closely, it looks like strangely the text cuts off exactly where I have some unicode characters. Perhaps phpBB does not like unicode?

Removing Unicode from my post worked.




===========================



I'm not sure what the problem was. But everything works now. I have marked this forum post as "solved".

Thank you.
