Forum Character Support
What type of character support does the forum software have?
I tried to make a test post a few minutes ago that contained characters from multiple languages but I got the following message:
The following errors were encountered You are not authorized to perform this action
At other times I will be able to post, but the text just disappears.
Obviously plain old Latin characters work, but what about diacritics and other special characters? Unfortunately there is no way for me to know what characters are supported until I actually try to post since the preview always shows everything working…
There shouldn’t really be a reason it blocks you. I’ve made some changes in the backend that could influence it, but if you still get it please let me know where you’re trying to add this post and I’ll investigate further.

Everything seems to be working now. Thanks!
I’ve discovered something that may be related? If I use an emoji (not the forum smileys - a standard emoji), my post will not appear. But without any error message.
Great find! I’ve made it so it no longer breaks on that and it stores the emoji correctly, but I haven’t been able to get it to show the actual emoji yet. Will continue trying to figure that out.
Fixed this! Thanks for reporting :-)
It never worked before. Thanks.
P.S. I can FINALLY write “Djokovic”‘s surname properly: it’s Đoković, mind you.
