ALL CAPS in Title failed, even when edited.

In posting a reply to an existing thread, I typed a title as "T.A.N.S.T.A.A…" which was rendered T.a.n.s.t.a.a…." when posted. Two attempts to edit failed to correct the situation. Any suggestions?

"Any suggestions?"

Yes, don't worry about it too much. That bugs me also, but the filter is in place to prevent "shouting" in thread titles. I turned off the switch for a short while and, believe me, the cure is much worse than the rare problem it causes.

Curious that ALL CAPS worked in my thread starter.

Ah, well, consider it ignored. Thanks.

Add in a word with at least one lower-case letter, and vBulletin shouldn't decapitalize anything.
