Hi, I seem to be having an issue where any emoji included in any topic on my forum once posted shows as a question mark. Has anyone experienced this error and how do I fix it? As you can see from the image attached, the emoji shows as a question mark every time one anyone posts.

Hi @retrakslots,

This emoji issue is not related to wpForo.

Check your DB charset it should be utf-8 mb4

@retrakslots,

Navigate to Dashboard > wpForo > Tool > Database table, Find wp_wpforo_posts table, and provide a screenshot of it.

@chris I've attached the screenshot. I also checked the DB Charset and changed this to the one provided and refreshed website cache, furthermore I also just updated to wordpress 6.1 too.

@retrakslots,

Ok, that's the reason that the Emojis don't show correctly.

Check this topic, there is written what to do to change the Charset:

Hi,

I had a Query error when using Emoji in my post.

I followed the instructions hère https://wpforo.com/community/faq/emoji-does-not-work-errors-topic-add-error-and-reply-failed/

I upgrade from utf8mb3_unicode_ci to utf8mb4_unicode_ci.

Now i dont have errors any more but instead of showing my emoji, it shows "????"

I use WP 6.11 / WPFORO 2.1.6 / 10.6.12-MariaDB

Is there a way to display the emoji instead off ????

@argentetsalaire,

Create a page in WP, and insert emojis, if you get the same question marks, then It's not about wpForo, the issue is related to your hosting.
