It's being able to post 'code' blocks such as C++ or other programming language examples in the correct formatting. The forum software treats it like plain text. I'd forgotten about this but still haven't being able to make it work.

I've made some changes to the colours. Let me know if you spot any more that don't look right.

Hello Arokhs Twin,

I have a little problem.
When I use my smartphone to navegate in the forum, I write my "name" and my "password", but the web goes to the main page, or my sesion does not start, and I can not write posts... :?:

This post, I am writing from a PC with SO windows. All is well from here. But my smartphone, with android and Chome, not works well.

Thanks to all friends. :)

Hi what smartphone OS and what browser do you use? I can only test it on Android with Chrome but it sounds like a cookie issue or your device is not accepting them.

My smartphone OS, is Android.
My browser, is Chrome.

Ok, I will look if the stupid-phone is not accepting the cookies. :roll: :lol:
All the others things goes well.

Thankyou very much! :)

Hello,
My smartphone, with Adroid and Chome, is accepting all the cookies. I have actualized the browser Chrome. But it not works well, I can not join and write posts in the forum from my phone. And I can not see nothing wrong in my phone.

But, I can join in the forum and write posts, using a PC, with Windows OS, and Chome.

Hmm, that's strange as I've just tried it now on my phone. I can browse and log in, create and delete posts OK. Maybe it does not work with certain versions of Chrome.

I'm using Android 8.0.0 with 1st of June 2018 security update, chrome 67.0.3386.87 - can you let me know what version you use? Also try clearing your browser cache.

Hello :)

Yes, it is strange. I can login and write posts only from a public PC. In my smartphone does not works. :?

I have deleted chache, and reinstalled Chrome. But no changes.
I have tried to make a new count, with another email, using my phone... but, it does not work in my phone, for example, I can not see the email for activate the count. Now, when I am looking from this PC I can do all well, and the email of activation was already there. It is very estrange ... :?
When I use my phone, I write my user name and my password, and then the web page goes to the main page of the forum. I can see my username connected, down in the statistics, next to the Google Bot and anonymous visitors. But it's as if my session opened elsewhere, on another phone, because I'm still not open session to write, as if I were an anonymous visitor. It could be a problem with Cookies, or with my IP address. I do not know.

Well...
I think, some years ago, there was a hacker that hacks my phone, but I have erased all the phone and restart the phone by standart from cero. Also, a several months ago, there was a hacker, who wanted to cheat me and sent me a fake email, in which he pretended to be a friend called "Sryml". He supplanted his identity, with a similar but false mail, and he sent me a virus and he deleted several of my videos on youtube. I'm sure that on the same date, someone started attacking the forum with spam. the dates coincide. From that moment, my phone is not good. Everything is very strange, and it is too coincidental, but I say it just in case it could be something more than that. :?:

Anyway, but there's no problem, when I need to write here I'll do it using a PC. Many thanks for everything. :)

No problem, we get attacked by hackers and spam all the time. The anti-spam and security measures stop 99% of spam but sometimes real people will get past the Q&A based antispam and then put that into a spambot. When this happens we tend to get a lot of actual posted spam but a change of the questions and answers fixes that.

Also whenever someone registers and / or posts the user's IP address and email address is checked against several known spammer databases. If there's a match the user will get an error message and prevent the post from being submitted.

The "message colors" text in the PM panel is also pretty bad - very hard to read without selecting (highlighting) it:

Yeah I tried to fix that when fixing other colour issues with the PM menus but couldn't find the code in the maze of files etc. Will give it another go when I get chance to look at it in more detail.
