There seems to be a glitch in the PM system somewhere. I sent one this morning and it worked fine, I received a reply. When I went to reply, it gave me this error on a white screen:
"Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 737280 bytes) in /home/sites/batteryvehiclesociety.org.uk/public_html/forums/includes/utf/data/utf_compatibility_decomp.php on line 2"
Undeterred, I tried again, with a new PM, rather than a reply, but got the same error. I then switched machines and tried to send a PM from my laptop, but got the same error message. My guess is that it's something in the forum software, rather than at my end, although I can't say that the error message means much to me!
I've cracked it! Having spent over an hour trying to send a PM to Stuart, I've discovered that the error message is triggered by the "£" sign.
Substituting the word "pounds" for the "£" sign allows the PM to be sent.
Bizarre or what?
I think today's software upgrade has fixed this. You should now be able to type pound signs in your PMs. Please let me know if you find otherwise.
