Re: Editing posts has wavy red line under all words

Many thanks - yes, that was it. I had spell-check selected but also, oddly, Catalan!

Editing posts has wavy red line under all words

When I edit a post I get a wavy red line under almost all the words. Actually the same is happening as I'm writing this. It doesn't make the screen unreadable but it is slightly annoying. Any explanation for this?

How do spam comments avoid my spam filter?

For the third time in recent months I'm getting a lot of spam comments and need to block comments temporarily. I assume that these are being posted automatically rather than manually, in which case I don't understand how they get round the requirement to copy the scrambled code before posting. Anyon...

Re: Where do I put statcounter code?

Thanks to both for replies. In the end I put the code at the bottom of templates/default/index.tpl and that is working.

Where do I put statcounter code?

Re: New installation reports lots of errors

How do you replace the files "one by one"? Also with your ftp-client? Always upload your file in binary mode. Thank you - it's possible that I mistakently changed to ascii for the upload. Anyway, I'm now able to replace the faulty files and the errors are being fixed bit by bit, so I think I'm winn...

Re: New installation reports lots of errors

Thanks for the reply. I don't think it is the ftp client (ncftp), because replacing the files one by one doesn't eliminate the errors. I couldn't find anything relevant with search.

I'm glad it isn't the version number (I just wish I knew how you can tell - I can't see it anywhere.)!

New installation reports lots of errors

I just made a fresh reinstallation of Serendipity in a new directory. Everything seemed to go correctly and the site seems to be working. But "Verify installation" produces lots of errors of this form. # plugins/serendipity_event_spamblock/captcha_a.png corrupt or modified: failed verification # plu...

Re: Worrying respons to Verify Integrity

I downloaded the file and compared it (with vimdiff) with the file from the latest version of Serendipity. The two are completely identical so perhaps I should simply leave things as they are.

Re: Worrying respons to Verify Integrity

Thanks for the clarification. I removed the htmlarea folder without ill-effects. I'm not sure about functions_config.inc.php. It was changed in August and I think I may have done so in the course of sorting out a password problem with Gavin's help. I can't be sure. Perhaps I should upload a new vers...

Re: Worrying respons to Verify Integrity

Sorry - I'm still not clear what I should do. Ignore the error messages? Delete all the files that Verify objects to? Delete everything and start again?

Worrying respons to Verify Integrity

Some time ago I made the alterations suggested in the blog on this site (December 21), deleting the files suggested there. Following another post in this forum I just did verification on my site and got the following: * include/functions_config.inc.php corrupt or modified: failed verification * html...

Re: Accented letters in entry title

or just do a copy & paste, which would be my quick & dirty choice. In this case, I would hold a text nearby with all the foreign chars & signs I needed in the past. Ian Thanks - yes, I don't know why I didn't think of that. No way I can enter accents directly in the title line but I simply cut and ...
