Why do my smilies turn into question marks?
#1
Any ideas?

Are you typing on a phone because I don't think the forums support that kind of smiley. You have to use the built-in smileys, either by selecting them from the frame to the left of each post or by typing in the shortcut.

Just a test, please ignore.

So 2 byte UTF8 are fine, and it supports 3 byte Chinese given the spammy post deleted earlier... just extended emoji isn't Sad

Lets start again.

First you said all smilies are turning into question marks. Then you can't see the smilies popup (?) Then you typed : - / which did work.

So what exactly isn't working?
So we can get to the bottom of it for you.

I suspect that he's using emoji characters directly, from his phone keyboard. Some software along the route doesn't like them and is replacing them with question marks

All he needs now is a list of the codes
Code:

and what emoji they produce.

Yes, but they worked perfectly well on the old board. Apple smilies look nicer, more sophisticated. Smile

I figure the code has either been turned off, or this board release has blocked it at some level.

The old board was completely different software.

Think of the old board as a Commodore 64



This is a Dragon 32

I’m not a sheep, honest. But it did have something to do with a boy. Wink

2 byte and 3 byte characters are fine, 4 byte characters are not (which most emoji are), MyBB does support 4 byte characters as long as the database collation etc is set properly, so it's either an unintentional database issue or Tiuri has decided he doesn't want to see all our weird emoji all over the place.

Nothing to do with me, I'm just a lowly mod Wink I'll mention this to Ladsnet

Like I said, they seemed to work fine on the old board, even if they appeared a little small on screen.

Hope you can figure out a solution. Smile

I'll have a look when the next board software update comes along but at present all I can suggest is you use the smilies we provide.
