Top Forums Programming Issue with Keyboard or Char Encoding During Migration Post 303046245 by Neo on Tuesday 28th of April 2020 08:12:37 AM

OBTW, if I add this to the showthread PHP script:

Code:
$thread['title'] = utf8_encode($thread['title']);

(which I just did for fun to the old forum).

The issue is the same.

I think it is an HTML encoding issue in the vB app. If you look at the source code of the page in old forum:

Issue with Keyboard or Char Encoding During Migration-screen-shot-2020-04-28-71156-pmjpg


So, there is some underlying issue with vBulletin3 which is on reason we are migrating, to get away from this way past EOL forum software.

If I add this to the showthread script in old forum:

Code:
header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');

This does not help on old forums either:

Code:
header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-16');

The issue is the same because of some coding mismatch with the same "non-standard" mojibake.

Mojibake - Wikipedia

Dennis, are you getting bored with this mojibake stuff yet?

Actually, I'm feeling very good the only issues you are finding out outlier encoding issues which are broken in the old, legacy, obsolete, long EOL, forum, at this point.

NAME
Locale::Script - standard codes for script identification SYNOPSIS
use Locale::Script; $script = code2script('phnx'); # 'Phoenician' $code = script2code('Phoenician'); # 'Phnx' $code = script2code('Phoenician', LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC); # 115 @codes = all_script_codes(); @scripts = all_script_names(); DESCRIPTION
The "Locale::Script" module provides access to standards codes used for identifying scripts, such as those defined in ISO 15924. Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 15924 four-letter codes will be used. SUPPORTED CODE SETS
There are several different code sets you can use for identifying scripts. A code set may be specified using either a name, or a constant that is automatically exported by this module. For example, the two are equivalent: $script = code2script('phnx','alpha'); $script = code2script('phnx',LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA); The codesets currently supported are: alpha, LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA This is a set of four-letter (capitalized) codes from ISO 15924 such as 'Phnx' for Phoenician. It also includes additions to this set included in the IANA language registry. The Zxxx, Zyyy, and Zzzz codes are not used. This is the default code set. num, LOCALE_SCRIPT_NUMERIC This is a set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 15924 such as 115 for Phoenician. ROUTINES
