Database error
« on: September 23, 2018, 08:50 AM »
Tried to post a recipe in the trad section this morning with 2 different iPads and got Darabase Error message each time. Any ideas?

Tried to post it here as a reply and the same message.
Weird as I copy and paste from notes on the iPad all the time.

Are there any smilies in the note you're trying to paste into the forum T63? I've experienced this problem in the past which turned out to be SMF2.0 not liking the native iOS smilies. Delete those from your pasted text and you may find the post is successful.

Nothing like that at all. Plain text with a link to the source website. I even deleted the link before logging out, clearing all the cookies etc etc etc.. I’ve posted other messages it’s just this one it doesn’t like.

I ended up typing the recipe for chicken Dahiwala directly into the text box rather than copying and pasting, lo and behold it finally accepted it.

Then I would suspect that the original contains invisible-but-unacceptable (to SMF) characters,  Converting to a PDF then extracting the text can sometimes help to eliminate these,

Last time this happened to me I cut and pasted the article into notepad which on previous occasions had removed whatever illegal formatting there was enabling me to cut and paste it back to the forum. Didn't work that time though so I gave up.
