I was originally testing Mr Mulcahy's posting ability using his permissions settings. The bug preventing posting was due to accented letters being ignored on usernames, so the Forum user and website user datbases did not match, thus preventing posting rights.

It was fixed after much head-scratching.

Some people on this island call it "the war on the fada" (that's the name of the accent in Irish).

Delighted it's fixed! I do not speak Irish well but I like it when my given name is spelt correctly :) Thanks for all the effort on this!!

Aha! Well done to all the behind the scenes team on this one :thumbup:

I always try to copy and paste Tomás' name correctly, so I probably added to the problem ;)

Well done!
These sort of issues can be real head-bangers, but always seem obvious with hindsight.

Oh thanks! :D FYI the keyboard shortcut on a PC is "alt gr" and the vowel you want the accent on.

Wow - I didn't know that, but just tried it and you're right. Works perfectly, so I can now type fluently in French! ;)
