          Most UTF-8 Emoticons will work if your vBulletin is using a UTF8MB4 character set on the database.

              Wayne Luke when we first moved to cloud we had problems with any emoticons used from a device keyboard (not those in bulletin) they would cut off any following text in a post.

              We were told it wasn't possible to fix without the site being offline for a long time and even then might still not work so we didn't bother going ahead.

              If we were changed to UTF8MB4 would that change things? Or are we already on it?

                Cloud sites do not use UTFMB4 by default. I wish they all did. Since you're a migration, your site most likely uses the character set that you had prior to migrating and upgrading. Converting to UTF8MB4 would be the down time that you mentioned. How long a forum will be down depends on its size. I had my Rabid Badger cloud site converted to UTF8MB4 by the cloud developers so it is possible to make the transition. As I said, most of the emoticons work out of the box. However, some are overlaid on existing ASCII characters so the output isn't perfect. Some may cut off text. It depends on how the end-of-data character is interpreted.

                Here is a small test of the emoticons using the Windows 10 Touch Keyboard - https://forums.rabidbadger.io/rabidb...-emoticon-test

                If you wanted to try, you would have to open a ticket and ask that your database be converted to UTF8MB4. However, emoticons aren't something we test for currently.

                  Thanks for the detailed explanation Wayne and the link. It's not a major problem so not something we'd bother with at the moment.

                      Hi Wayne, how to convert to UTF8MB4? Can help to share the steps?

                        I suggest waiting until after 5.6.3 is released though. There is an updated conversion script in 5.6.3.

                            Is there any benefit to running the new script if the old one was run previously?
