Requests have been made to add unicode-based emoji support to php-bbdr. The support would not require utf8mb4 collation. It would, however, require that browsers have built-in emoji support...and this is an issue at the moment since some browsers are well behind the emoji curve.

If you view this post and cannot see the following emoji-based smilies, then please consider upgrading to a modern browser such as Firefox or Internet Explorer. 😜

I'd be interested in opinions, pro or con, about this idea.

Is there any way to get emoji support for a 3.0.14 board without having to install php-bbdr?

We would prefer that you install php-bbdr. 😉

Full emoji support is now included in php-bbdr.

php-bbdr build _a21 been uploaded.



I noticed the following topic on the phpBB support board:

phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=2316556

Maybe the devs should download the _a21 build of php-bbdr -- it is fully compatible with PHP7. Hopefully they will give us credit when they borrow the code. :D

I hope you can still help me add emoji support to my board because it's too much of a hassle to convert to php-bbdr or create a whole new board (however I am still willing to create a site using php-bbdr - I just want support for my main site too). I read your post on Dion Designs on the two conditions needed - I definitely meet #1, but I am unsure on #2. Where would I make sure "searches on topic titles are exact"?

Since your request has nothing to do with php-bbdr, I made my response on the Dion Designs board.
