even though i will mention the term "egroupware" in the description of what i have done, this is not an egroupware integration issue.

i was trying to migrate from FUDeGW to a more external installation, therefore i dumped the forum tables, installed a clean FUDForum 2.6.0, imported the data, copied over files, avatars etc. and run the upgrade script to FUD 2.7.6

this went very well so far, but now i do have some problems:

1. all accounts need approval -- i do not want to approve all of them by hand and i certainly dont want the forum to send a mail to every user that his account is now approved as this would only cause confusion. Is there a way to prevent the accounts being put into this state or to approve them without trigger the mail sending?

2. the forum is used by germans, the theme locale is set to german, the header shows that charset=ISO-8859-15 is in use
thats not really bad, but somehow we managed to change the database to utf8 which did some nasty things to all those umlauts in Forum descriptions. The real problem is now, when i try to reenter the description it gets truncated at the first umlaut.

Is this expected behaviour in mixing the charsets? How can i work around this?

You can auto approve account by setting the approved bitmask which you can reference from fud_users.tbl file inside the sql directory.

You can do charset conversion via forum admin control panel.

yes i can .. but there is no setting that seems to work. The admin pages are encoded as ISO-8859-15, which is not choosable at charset conversion. This either truncates the String at the first umlaut or replaces all umlauts with ? .. both are not really usable

In the meantime i found another problem. In FUDeGW a {ROOT} in the Templatefile is extended to
http://server.domain/index.php


in 2.7.6 this extends to "index.php" only. This is no problem with text links, but in Forms this leads to rendering them unusable. When i change the Template and replace {ROOT} with {FULL_ROOT}{ROOT} for the action Value of Form Tags, the form works again. Unusable in this context means, when i click on submit, i get redirected to the index page and the form data is not comitted.

Is this intentional? (meaning i missed something) And is there an alternative to changing all templates?

{FULL_ROOT} is the domain and {ROOT} is index.php

If you change your config you need to rebuild the theme.
