Emojis don't show up
« on: October 10, 2017, 03:47:47 AM »
After moving the board to a new server, inserted emojis don't show up in posts ('?' is being shown instead)
I have the newest English language (UTF-8) installed. The databases and tables are in utf8mb4_unicode_ci
Anybody got an idea? :-\

Admin -> Smileys and Message Icons -> Settings

Check the base url and absolute path.

Thanks, but I'm actually talking about the unicode emojis

It maybe an issue on how you exported your data originally that could cause that to occur.

My host did the server change. So I really have no clue.

I just asked them.

But I'm assuming they did an image of the entire server plus the databases. They didn't really export anything from the forum or dabble in any of the forum settings. So I don't understand where you're going with this.
