use the
Code:
[code]enter code here[/code]

to display codes like

Code:
<br> <span> etc.

tell me id's of the messages involved

saved messages might sometimes get displayed incorrectly, that's because encoding of special characters was changed to avoid mysql errors.

if you have a saved message then you can't do anything with it.
sending messages works ok with me, i cannot see an issue

I saved 3 random messages and it worked perfectly for me.

If it doesn't work for kingkongfan1, then we should look for a cause there, where there is a difference between my and his username, or message content.

I believe the problem might be caused by kingkongfan1's username. Maybe it itself has some characters which the save feature doesn't allow.

I'd look for a browser incompatibility.
The only odd character is the 1 on the end, I doubt a number in the username would cause/trigger a bug.

My name is only bold and colorful. Maybe it's the italics, and underlined that mess up the messages, or the general length of the username.

I appreciate what you are trying to do, but I do not understand why the #1 at the end of my name would cause such an issue with the "body" or the "message content" of a pm itself. I could see it if I were getting the problem in the area of my name, but not in the main body of the message, also it would appear that I am not the only one with this issue.

let me explain something, I had this issue a long time before I ever did anything to my name,(color, bold, italic,etc.) I only changed my name color after I took over this acct,(98) when I was still using the (2784) acct I had this problem & my name wasn't altered at all. I do not know if this is helpful or not, maybe it is the number of letters in my name, Idk...

span style=\"color:olive;font-weight:bold;font-style:italic\"KingKongFan1

this is my name, if I need to change something then tell me & I will.

no offence but I am incapable of making this error show up and the time it got reported I was able to duplicate it and then i fixed it

I saved at least half a dozen pm's on main & test server as well as my home comp from yours and kings accounts aswell as my own
(tried mozilla & opera [both quite up to date versions], win xp [can't test win 7])

also i haven't found any bugged saved pm's in your accounts so if you could maybe save one such pm which buggs and then pm me the id of that message in your savebox

I had 1 message saved in my save box that was messed up, but I deleted that one, then I went about saving random message in my mail, 2 were sent to me & saved ok with no problem, the 3rd is a message I sent to smog & it has & amp ; in it several times. tbh I do not understand what you mean by "then pm me the id of that message in your savebox". wait, I think I figured it out, pm sent if I sent the wrong thing, let me know.


concerning this post...

Missing? interesting, I do not fully understand (yet) exactly what you have said here, but as long as you do that in the end is all that matters. so I guess it had nothing to do with my name?

@Kong
When you store things in a database, they have some security in themselves. So they will change things like <,>,;," to other stuff thats less of a security risk.

So at times they get messed up.

If it is translated before going into the database and then translated when being displayed then you don't get the messy stuff we are seeing.

Always happens with coding, the little things are missed. haha
