Emoji special characters cause SQL errors

Postby Ted » Sat Feb 25, 2017 11:48 pm

Cutting and pasting any emojis seems to cause a SQL error when attempting to make a post or send a PM.

The workaround is to avoid using emoji characters.

(I don't think this needs solving, I just took some time to troubleshoot it and figured I'd mention it so others know to avoid this too.)

Newer versions of the forum software should have resolved this issue, however upgrading to the most recent phpbb is a very time consuming process, and at this time unlikely, as the game will be ending in 2017

Absolutely. Mostly I wanted to post this so if someone else gets SQL errors, they know they just need to remove emoji.
