This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I've just installed JForum 2.1.8 on JBOSS 4.2.2 with mySql 5.0.
I've created the jforum database with unicode
The problem is, when I try the same characters both on the subject and in the message body, after submitting, the subject is in correct shape although the (same) text in the body is not. An example of the case is on the attachment.
PS: The only difference I see is the post_text field type is TEXT and post_subject is VARCHAR (in jforum_posts_text table). Is this a problem with TEXT type? [originally posted on jforum.net by ziphyre]
