    Foreign language

    What's happened? Suddenly when I access Woody's site. I get half of my output in some unintelligable gibberish? ie: the upper bar under the Woody's Lounge, the first two links are in junk, then Controls and PostBox is OK, then one more junk output, modList is Ok, one more junk,Help is Ok and then more junk. Throughout the pages some things are in english and others are in this cross between arabic and german or something with a lot of "umlas"????
    This is the only app affected, everything else is fine
    Hope any replys are in something I can read, but it seems that any posts are readable.
    Ideas? <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15> Here is a paste of the above:

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: Foreign language

    All right!!!! Who is the wise guy??
    My personal profile page was changed to read in Chinese instead of English!! I am the only one here to have access to this machine, and I know I didn't reset the thing to Chinese. I took a guess as to what the language setting was and luckily hit it right, on English and all is Ok now. There must be a way to hack these settings.

    All one needs to do is to pick one of the FLAGS near the top to change the lanquage. Many people have done this not knowing.

    Dave,
    Ok, Thanks. This I can see as the probable cause. Maybe it shouldn't be so easy to editchange languages?

    You could turn off the flag display. If you want to see what one stands for in a post you can hover on it.

    Re: Foreign language

    Hi Bob, when I first joined Woodys, I made the same mistake and within minutes everyone in the lounge came to my rescue, I sure felt dumb when I discovered it was a simple click on my part. I think this site is amazing and the kind support given freely by others an inspiration.

    I like your sign off line, perhaps because I can relate. <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>

    Re: Foreign language

    Just goes to show you that no matter how much you may THINK you know about a given subject, there is still more that you DON"T know!

    So far as Woody's goes, I have tried many other technical type forums that are available and without a doubt, Woody's is far superior to any of them in content and the intellegence and helpfulness of the contributors. Some of the others are an insult to your own intellegence, with contributors that have an IQ the same as their hatsize! <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31>
