Allow emoticons and smiley faces
« on: April 24, 2021, 03:14:39 PM »
Hello,

would it be possible to allow emoticons and smileys on the various Osclass themes please? I ask this because many members ask me to integrate it ...

It require changes in database connecyion encoding, table and column encoding.
Once done, and using ie tinymce editor, you should be able to enter emoji into description without problem

find this
$this->db->set_charset('utf8');

and change it to this
$this->db->set_charset('utf8mb4');

I found this, do you think it would be good?

@David
Consult with your hosting provider.
If it would be easy, it would be probably integrated already :)
