  1. Hey guys! Thanks so much for the upgrade, everything seems to be running smoothly on my end except for when I want to use my phone's (samsung galaxy s5) emojis, the only one that appears is ☺. The rest don't show up.
     
  2. Hey Roysksopp , you can't imagine how much pain those emojis created for us during conversion :D

    This aside in order to use Emoji's the encoding must be set to utf8mb4 encoding. We just converted from a latin1 system to UTF8. At this stage another conversion for utf8mb4 doesn't sound feasible however we are considering this in 18 months when all browsers offer built in emoji support.

    Some systems like our old system tries to displays emoji's without correct encoding which cause major issues.Thats why emoji support will be very limited for now.

  3. Gotcha! ☺

    I use the forum emojis a good bit but occasionally use the ones on my phone. Is this a problem for android only or both android and iPhone?
     
  4. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
     
  5. They just won't display on the new system :) other than that no problem any further :D
