This problem has been going for a long, long while now, but I don't think it has ever been reported.

When one tries to edit an album with an apostrophe in the title( from the "edit album" option on the album page), one gets a 500 error. The only solution is to delete the apostrophe from the title of the album and then put it back again by going through the Admin page.

Is there a fix for this?

Before the upgrade the message was about a syntax error. Now it is a 500 error.

I reported similar problem to [email protected] in PM a month ago (he haven't read it yet):

"there is extremely unpleasant bug if album info contains diactric letters (like Á, á, ű, ...).
How to reproduce:
- edit info from the album page --> diactric letters disappear.

It's enough to make any smallest change and after editing we'll see, for instance, Zoltn Fbin instead of Zoltán Fábián. Hours of work are often destroyed in a few seconds."


I ask all collabs (until it will be fixed):
Please NEVER edit albums' info with diactric letters from the album page. Edit them only from Admin area!
For non-collabs - please report errors in the forum in such cases.

I also have problems adding albums with Romanian diacritics, especially ă. Sometimes I find similar diacritics that get displayed well by the PA software, but if I can't find it I prefer to use the letter without diacritics.

I am running into this problem with Alan Morse's 4 O'clock and Hysteria album.

Just as the MMA Site News, Newbies, Help & Improvements section has been fail since the forum opened and its General Polls section has been screwed up for almost as long, but nothing is done. Clearly Max is out of touch with the common PAer and must be deposed. UPRISING!

You can't execute all of us.

They're all protesting Max's fascism.

If you edit it from the Admin page it's no problem. Just from the album page is the dificulty. Or tell me what needs changing and I will do it.

It does not happen if the info is edited from Admin zone.

Unfortunately not fixed. After editing, for example, this page http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=52517 Nóvé turns to N?v? Angry
