    Posting Threads with Special Characters in the Title Line

    I am going to ask that all members stop posting threads with special characters in the title line.

    IE11 can't seem to handle it. It gives the member a web page that states to contact the administrator that the post can not be found.

    Here are a couple of examples.

    Chrome also has an issue with them but it seems to be intermittent.

    I have heard reports that FireFox also has issues but I have never seen it myself.

    For Chrome and FireFox its probably only the newer versions that are having the issue.

    This is happening quite often and becoming a challenge to fix every time someone posts a thread with special characters.

    If you want members to read your posts please format the title line accordingly.

    As an update

    IE11 Chrome and FF all have issues with Special Characters.

    There also seems to be s number of characters in the title line that causes the browser to freak out.

    A link that is x long may puke in IE but work in FF.

    Another link that has the same special characters but more total characters pukes in IE 11 and FF 34.x.

    I still say stop using any special characters but I can definitely say

    The browser does not like

    ( ) ! -

    Those characters seem to be a major problem with browsers and this version of vBulletin.

    I am sure the list of characters will grow
