: mircea_popescu: In trial-by-fire updates, it turns out that mp-wp appears to barf on unicode such as " 😀 "
: Now I've done some testing, and setting both the mysql server and the table to use the utf8mb4 character set allows the eating of such uniturds
: My question for you is, do you ~want~ the table/database utf8 charset extended to 4 bytes to store these things? Alternatively I guess I could just strip 'em out
: nearly done with this experiment.
: could you replace all instances of 4byte utf with [X ((Symbolic representation of Mother Goddess / Great Inca / USG's State Corporations has been removed.))] plox ?
<< when I make an actual post of an article, it drops the entirety of the content I was trying to post. If I'm updating an article, it drops the entirety of additional content I was adding. Looks like your comment test behaves differently. In any case, it behaves strangely
