    After a couple weeks here, the site is still working... just a number of bugs to figure out (unable to post more than 4 links at a time, and some non-letter characters like dashes are showing up as question-marks which means the "character set" has changed again).

    Now to catch up on all the news from the last 3 weeks...

    Perhaps you can force the database connection itself to UTF-8 by adding something like this below the mySQL connection code:

    $yourDBconnectionname -> set_charset("utf8");

    Substitute $yourDBconnectionname with your connection name.

    I will have a dig around and see what I can find.... to see if that can help.

    Cool.

    If the special characters indeed appear correctly while viewing the data directly in the database (eg in phpMyAdmin), then the above might work.

    Is anyone else getting the "403 Forbidden" screen when trying to post something with too many links... or is it just me?

    I have found that if click on the top left tab (switch editor to source mode) before I click on send, it seems to get through, but only if there is less than 4 links in the post.

    3 URLs for me. 4th gave me the 403 error.

    I'm also getting randomly logged out after submitting, and sometimes on clicking on another post too I think.
