when you hover the mouse over the "Mark all forums as read" button, the mouse over text shows as
Mark all threads in all message boards as \'read\'

The element shows
title="Mark all threads in all message boards as \'read\'"

the escape slashes are showing in mouse-over text
I suspect the single quotes are escaped when the text is also getting passed through an escape-string function which then escapes the slashes causing them not to be replaced by PHP.

Suggest removing the single quotes because they are redundant anyway and remove the escape slashes as well.
Check other mouse-over texts do not contain "expressive" single quotes to emphasise a word or phrase.

Thanks for finding it, AMDave. It doesn't happen in the German translation, but in the English version.
I reported it to David.

re-test in new version

the slashes and quotes are gone
but now there is a stray ")" right-bracket at the end of the text

please re-send this issue "forum_help_desk.php button mouse-over text"


CORRECTION - there is now a ")" at the end of EVERY button mouse-over text

That's an Ooops!

Crickey mate. It's not a question of blame.
It's a question of observation and reporting.
The original problem (above) still exists on the BOINC Alpha Test site (ver 23761M) on http://isaac.ssl.berkeley.edu/
If berkley applied the fix to the problem above that then broke all the button mouse-over texts then they need to know about it so they can fix it before it rolls on into the next release.
The BOINC Alpha Test site is for testing the client and manager and no-one responds to message board posts over there.
So if this is not as good a place as any to test and report BOINC server software then where is the right place to perform testing and bug reporting?
They used to have another test site (not on isaac) but I cannot locate it now.
Do they have a new test server somewhere?
Or maybe it is all in a closed system and you're not supposed to be using this version yet?
