  • strange character in who is online member

    Hi sir.

    I have a forum with vBulletin build 3.5.3

    I dont know if this phenomena looks like normal or not
    any way , I noticed that when I am visiting specific website ( only that site ) , a strange charachter to some (not all ) members appears.
    in addition to , it happenned with explorer but not in firefox or mozilla browser.
    Knowng that , when I cleared the temp. files , cookies , etc...
    it disappeared totally,
    but if I returned again to those specific webpages that does not belong to my forum , these characters appears again in my forum ??
    Finally :- I should not mention this b/c I think it might misslead you & just in case it might be valuable to you to know that those pages from other site belongs to someone who was my partner (i.e an admin with full access to Cpanel to my forum ) in the past but not any more now .
    so, plz. exclude last info if it is not valuable to you .

    will you please take alook to the pic. I attached &if any clue about what is happening I would appreciate it .

    best regrds.

    oops , I missed one last thing
    it happened when I am logged in not when I logged out

    It is simply the '|' character that is used to space usernames. Nothing wrong with that.

      What's the URL to your forum so we can see it first hand?
