If I had to Downgrade PHP i would have to pay my hosting company or someone else.
And that could cost me upto $150 as the security would also have to be looked at again.

If there were problems with the PHP Versions an announcement would have been appreciated.
Fortunately for me after reading this thread i had my server re-installed but with php 5.3.27


The point i'm making is that sometimes the problems cost us money as well as frustration.

Version v7.5.8

The problem is situated with "strange" and accented characters. Eg.

é
è
à
»
ç
£

So I suspect a configuration change/issue in the new PHP version. I'm looking for a solution, but I'm not extremely hopeful.

For advanced users who slightly know what they're doing...

Fix... although I don't know if it's 100% (not using the language charset variable).

If you have some time:

Edit all the files in admin, libs, scripts and root directories in an editor that will allow you to do a search across all files. Eg. Editpad.

Find: htmlspecialchars(
(Example: htmlspecialchars($rss_title))

Add this to the function:
, ENT_COMPAT | ENT_HTML401, "ISO-8859-1")
(Example: htmlspecialchars($rss_title, ENT_COMPAT | ENT_HTML401, "ISO-8859-1"))

Note: I've gone for single quotes 'ISO-8859-1' in the libs > smarty files as it seems common there. Do NOT use single quotes in the other files as this fix wil NOT work.

I would suspect your issue is not just php>5.3 but what character set you use.
iso-8858 versus utf8
which is in your generic language file.
that is/was another issue with the upcoming upgrades since if you are not using utf-8 then a import would be needed to update all the tables.

Looking forward to a switch to UTF-8. But it's a bit unlogic to have a UTF setting in the language file and then everything else in ISO-8859-1 including the database tables.

I guess this will push the devs towards quicker developments though - seeing a whole lot of tickets / mails arrive in their system about this.

Ruben... I suspect you could actually then be someone who can convert the whole thing to UTF? Is it just a matter of switching the database table settings and setting the correct variable in the language file?

Well it becomes a mess at times.
Some people started the install with utf8 because you get a prompt somewhere on a new install as well as the default setting in MYSQL was also UTF8
Some have the tables as utf8 but never changed the language file to utf8.
And probably most have ISO-8859-1 in both the language file and the tables.

I tried to convert one once and it worked fine.
Another site was toast so I set it back to what it had.

SD stated at one time when we get to that point there would need to be a import not a regular upgrade to make multiple table changes as well as convert everything to UTF8.

try

http://rrn.dk/converting-a-mysql-database-from-latin1-to-utf8

for a reference on converting. Read the last line that would be changing the language file.

7.5.8 now supports php 5.4 and 5.5, so this is fixed, when it is released.

I hear what you're saying... but we have NOT received 7.5.8 ---- so the problem DOES still exist!!

I received an email just tonight from Texas asking why her "long post" from August disappeared.

I told her that I've already worked with people from Norway, Australia, Canada and North Carolina that had the same experience.

So, maybe the FIX has been added to the 7.5.8 PATCH, but until it's actually installed and verified on my servers, then I'm still SUFFERING from the slings and arrows of my users.

--- and I didn't say ANYTHING about the comment TWO weeks ago that I received regarding my SUPPORT TICKET that said that a fix should be available in 2 or 3 days!!!!????!?!?

Hmmm... got a point there.

I've sent in an answer to the Beta Tester question saying I'm interested. A week ago. Waiting for a reply.

7.5.8 should be available for d/l soon. I released the .zip to Brooks and upgraded UBBCentral to latest as well.

Sir Dude,
Many, many thanks...

Now... is there any chance that you can 1) fix Obama care?, or 2) close Guantanamo, or 3) get more bi-partisan solutions in Congress?

Sorry... but it's way too easy to be a cynic these days. In spite of all of the words and discussions -- we are SINCERELY GRATEFUL for UBB THREADS and YOU GUYS THAT KEEP WORKING ON IT.
