  • Shouting Limit not working?

    I have the Shouting Limit set to 5 characters, however some "shouters" use more than 5 as many as 12 characters in a word and the system doesn't convert their words as explained in the admin panel.

    Prevent your users 'shouting' in their thread titles/message text by changing all-uppercase titles with at least this many characters to capitalization only on the first letters of some words.

    Set the value to 0 to disable this function.

    Disable this for some international forums with different character sets, as this may cause problems.
    Why is it not working and how can I get it to work?

      THIS IS A SHOUTING TITLE

      This is NOT A SHOUTING TITLE

      The entire title needs to be in Capitals for it to count. If a letter is lowercase then it doesn't count.

            What do you have in the value? Default is 3... Any word over three characters in length should be affected.

            In the post quoted above, what other formatting does it have? Shouting is successfully suppressed here:

              Its set to one, I noticed back a few posts about smilies, I have just edited the post, removed the smilies and saved it, all the formatting is now correct.

              So if you have Smilies in at the front of you post then the shout prevention does not work

              Cheers
