  • Importing Arabic Usernames does not enable arabic usernames login

    I have a PHPBB 2.0 board, and I imported the usernames, I was unable to logign using the arabic credentials, I played witht he characterset e.t.c. to cp1256 UTF8 e.t.c Still unable to ..

    When creating new usernames in Arabic, they are entered into the database as:
    &# 1587;&# 1601;&# 1575;&# 1633;
    And that works perfectly fine when logging in Arabic characters, but the imported usernames, are in these characters: ÇáÓíÏ.

    How do I convert the imported usernames to the
    &# 1587;&# 1601;&# 1575;&# 1633;
    characters. I only need to convert the username field in the user table. This is the only thing that is hosing me up in my move to vbulletin. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

    I don't mind paying for the help.

    NB: I made the spaces in the code to show the characters, as they were displayed as Arabic characters when i post.

      Correct UTF8 support will be out very soon with ImpEx 1.78.
      I wrote ImpEx.

        Thanks!! Looking forward to it. Though I corrected it by changing the characterset when importing to UTF-8.
