Quoted text shows all quotes (2): SOLVED

Post by BuSch » Wed Jun 12, 2019 4:57 pm

After I created a database backup with PuTTY, suddenly my quotes are not decipherable any more:

Quote_Error.JPG

I found this topic:Quoted text shows all quotes by Highway Rider, but there is no solution description included.

And, as I haven't changed anything in the installation, I doubt that it has to do with the coulours.css. I changed back to the standard prosilver theme and the result was the same.
I know, "I haven't changed anything" is always suspicious ;) , but I'm pretty sure that I haven't touched anything but the PuTTY-console.

Yes. That error is caused by a bad css tag, usually from using an obsolete style.

wow , that was quick!
Any idea which one it might be? In which file?
And how can it turn bad, when I only create a backup?

And, YES, I have changed something!
I didn't check after I've installed the extensions. So I'll disable the extensions and see if I can find the culprit.

SOLVED:
I found the culprit: The extension Vector Icons did it!
When I deactivated it, everything was fine again.
You gave me the right idea :D

EDIT: the problematic lines in vectoricons.css were:

Code: Select all

/* Quote block */
blockquote 														{ background-image: url("./images/quote.svg"); }
.rtl blockquote 	
I commented them out and everything works fine now.
