finally i've managed to convert an old and heavily modded yabbse database to smf. that involved a lot of manual work.
now it seems to be fine. converted from latin to utf8. display is right.
the only problem i have - i can't login.
one password doeas work (i get that "password security has been upgraded" message, i retype it and then it works).
for the other account i've tried, there are numerous special chars and german umlauts in it.
first, i get the "security upgraded" message. i assume it is always displayed when password lenght and salt is not set.
and that one it fails. though i know it works on another installation
i looked up form encoding, it's accept-charset="UTF-8". maybe there's some js stuff working on the password?
anybody an idea?
