    It looks like you need to to a UTF-8 import. Here is a guide for UTF-8 imports:

  • Migrating British PHPBB3 Forum to EN_US VB - Cannot Resolve

    Hello,

    After migrating from PHPBB3 to VB, I have over 20,000 posts filled with these types of character issues.

    Example:

    Okay…because you know…if anyone explains the chords and can’t master the tabs…eh…tutorial video…and progress to the…or next…

    Note: The above was in plain text on PHPBB, not used with any post editor options or bbcodes.

    I've tried using cleaner code (over and over), but there's just too many characters to identify over a large volume of posts.

    The one thing I know, is that PHPBB was default British, whereas VB is not. I can't think of another reason for these issues, other than that.

    Is there a way to get PHPBB and VB to "play nice" and migrate the data without the above issues?

    I thought the following would work, but it doesn't.

    Code:
    $impexconfig['source']['charset']        = ' ';
    
     define('use_utf8_encode', false);
    
    
    define('use_utf8_decode', true);
    Ideas?

    Thank you
