Hi,

I just installed the Tapatalk plugin on my vBulletin 3.x forum and got the iOS app working.  Everything seems mostly good so far but I noticed a strange problem:  when posting from the iOS app, all apostrophes are turned into question marks.  This happens for all users with the app.   Here's an example:  https://nas-row.com/showpost.php?p=12121&postcount=234

Any idea how to fix this?  I assume that it's a string scrubbing function designed to prevent SQL injection or something.  Maybe it can convert to HTML character escape instead?

Found a reference to this problem on another site.  Looks like it's a regression introduced by iOS 11?

Looks like it's a "feature", not a regression.   Tapatalk folks, can you turn off Smart Punctuation for the text entry fields?   https://stackoverflow.com/questions/449 ... art-quotes


For everyone else, here's a work-around:  https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/89706

Settings -> General -> Keyboards -> Smart Punctuation -> OFF
