Re: UTF8 displays triangles for special chars

Fixed, yeyyyyyy! Thank you!!! Can't believe it was that simple! Explains why I hadn't noticed elsewhere though, had always used the phpbb db connection! *doh*

Re: UTF8 displays triangles for special chars

The data is coming from a stupidly complex query that pulls info from 15 separate tables using unions to merge the results into a single result, e.g. select a,b,c,'phpbb' as source from phpbb_posts union select a,b,c,'xyz' as source from another_table union select a,b,c,'zyx' as source from table_xy...

UTF8 displays triangles for special chars

Hi This problem is similar to one I had recently, but the other way around (see http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=71&t=1846245). In this case I'm trying to pull some of the latest post text from phpbb_posts table, but when displaying them apostrophe's are displayed as a � (other special...

When you click the groups tab, a new tab appears in green called 'Create' - click that :)

Re: phpBB Session Integration Library

It shouldn't be, doesn't phpbb dynamically load most classes as they're needed? In which case, only the classes required for authentication should be loaded? If you did want to rewrite it I think you'd need to pull a lot of the code from auth and session classes, just not sure it'd be worth all the ...

Handling text for db? [solved]

In my Talk mod (see Mods in Development) I'm taking text input from the user and storing it in a table to be displayed later. Somebody on the demo site has noticed that it doesn't support cyrilic text, so I'm assuming I'm not handling the user input correctly. I've tried looking through posting.php ...

Re: phpBB Session Integration Library

Why would you need to? If you're including phpbb that's got all of the functions you need to authenticate a user and check permissions that's already guaranteed to work with phpbb, so whats the point in rewriting all that?

Re: [DEV] Talk 0.1.0 - a phpBB microblogging service

Thanks for the comments :) There were a couple of questions on the demo site that I wanted to answer. Firstly, user permissions are already in place for viewing and posting to it so you can limit it by group/user/whatever. If there's any other user permissions you want I can get them added. Things l...

Re: Mod releases - a quick guide?

Thank you :) I had come across the creator somewhere along the way (seen so many pages now I cant remember a lot lol), but at the time it meant nothing. Having had a second look and with a slightly better understanding of how a phpbb mod works, I think I've got it! Just posted my first DEV mod so fi...

Re: Site Loading Issue

Its probably just taking longer to load the stylesheet than it is the page - could be a problem with the hosting or just with your net connection (depends whether everyone is experiencing the problem or just yourself). to be honest, it loads ok for me (delay between page load and stylesheet load alm...

Re: CSS Issue

its #search-box and can be found in colours.css in the style's theme folder (in prosilver at least). there's also more of #search-box in common.css and links.css.

as I said, I suggest you use firebug which will help narrow it down, especially if you're using multiple themes
