Actions Portal PM

Link: http://swapitshopboards.myfreeforum.org

Search terms: actions PM

Question: I am utilising the "First PM message" field in the Actions portal (specifically for sending a PM to a new user) but it seems dodgy when dealing with HTML. The message supposed to be sent is the following:
Quote:

I'm puzzled then as I have tested this in the office and it worked, I have checked your portal settings and they are pretty much identical as well.

The relevant code on server and office are also the same  

Anyone else have any bright ideas before I delve deeper?

Just wondering if special characters create an issue as some do get used in html, so maybe it's end result is malformed html?

but really as this is being done as a pm and not an email, shouldn't it be done in bbcode?
myff admin

Doesn't alter the fact it should work. I need to check this on a test forum on the same server.
There are some php issues with equality testing that may cause a difference on one server to another. Though at the moment I cannot see where.

Already tried it and BBCode also shows as plain-text.

All adds up to a phpbb equality issue, but no idea where at the minute. Will sort tomorrow I hope. Well today now.

How can support ever work, if when we ask a question you tell us something that is not true.

You false answer here has cost at least 1 hour of my time

HTML was, when I answered your question, and is, now, enabled.
myff admin

But your allowed html tags was set to "*, center" and you said it was "*".

Ah, in that case I am extremely sorry. I didn't realise our other administrator had added that, I should have checked before providing false information.
