Numbers showing up as text (Ex: 1 display as One)

Post by Ishtumba »

I've had this weird problem creep up last night and have no idea why it started.

Every post, topic, subject, etc. in phpBB no longer shows an actual number.. it translates it to the text:

1 is displayed as One
5 is displayed as Five
15 is displayed as One
etc..

I took a peak in the database, and the numbers are there.

Any ideas?

P.S. I tried to search the forum, but the search doesn't seem to be functioning.

Thanks,
Marc

If it's in the db as numbers, then my guess would be the word censor. You can check by going to the "Word Censors" section of the administration panel. If it's not that and you haven't installed any MODs that might be doing it, I have no idea.

Issues with phpBB.com search
You can also use google to search through the phpBB.com site by adding "site:www.phpbb.com" after your query. For example: "cannot login site:www.phpbb.com"

Have you checked the word censor in your ACP? That is usually the best place to start when thngs are getting re-written in phpBB.
