After the (forced!) forum move, I've noticed that report.txt attachements are not presented correctly when clicked upon. I think that's a problem with the web server settings as this worked correctly with the previous hosting provider.

The workaround is to download the report.txt and open them in an editor that can handle non carriage return text files.

:D and if you didn't want to go thru the extra effort of downloading and opening the report in an editor of some sort, you can view the attachment using the browser's page source feature.

Thanks for the tip, that works quite nicely!

However, I still think it would be better to tweak the server settings (if possible) for CR-less text files.

Actually the problem is related to the format the pages are sent from the forum in. Which even if you download the report you will notice that the format extension is .php.html rather than with the original .txt extension. I have spoken with Howler about it, but as yet we have not figured out the problem.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
