Unicode Characters

Post by GDI_Lord »

Does the forum accept Unicode characters? I just tried posting an emoticon (I know, i know! They're used by icky hipsters and teenage girls! It's just that I'm on my phone and don't recall the correct string for the: thumbsup: smiley.)

I'm guessing that it doesn't support full Unicode because I got this error message:
General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

Incorrect string value: '\xF0\x9F\x91\x8D' for column 'post_text' at row 1 [1366]

An SQL error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact the Board Administrator if this problem persists.
Please notify the board administrator or webmaster: nobody@g3ar.co.za
Unless, of course, emoticons aren't in Unicode.

Thanks

I honestly don't understand your problem?

A surprising amount of modern pseudoscience is coming out of the environmental sector. Perhaps it should not be so surprising given that environmentalism is political rather than scientific.

It is not broken.

There are currently 8 standardized versions of unicode, this forum wont support characters from the later versions because its old and wont have the newer collations

That doesnt mean it doesn't support unicode.
