Hi,

if you add an emoji to a K2 item, once you save the item, the emoji is replaced by a question mark. I suppose this is due to the database codification for table k2_items: all fields are utf8_general_ci, while they should be utf8mb4_unicode_ci.

Will this be addressed in a future update? BTW, is there a roadmap?

TIA

Marco

It has been fixed already in the K2 repo (for v2.10) but this will work on new installations only: github.com/getk2/k2/blob/master/administrator/components/com_k2/install.mysql.sql

You can use phpMyAdmin to swap the collation to "utf8mb4_unicode_ci". Or if you're planning to use K2 in a new installation, simply grab the Github copy of K2 from github.com/getk2/k2/archive/master.zip and not v2.9.0.


If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it
at the Joomla Extensions Directory: extensions.joomla.org/extension/k2/
