thank you for this great application! It is amazing.
I tried using MySQL as the database, and non-english movies appear as "???????". Is that some sort of non-unicode characher support issue, or I did something wrong?
There's also a bug, I think in the generated websode code too.
The movies table in the db is called "films", but site-generator ALWAYS seem to append "fmt_" to the table name supplied during site generation, so manual edit of config.inc.php is needed.
I also tried editing the entry in the database manually and was able to save it fine with non englich characters. If I point the generated website to that table in the db, it appears fine on the website.
The app however shows "????" and ruins the db entry if I try editing the movie.
That's very strange because it works fine with French characters with no issue. However, it's been a while since I test Filmotech with MySQL. Perhaps the encoding is no more reliable. I need to check this.
thanks for your reply.
The issue only exists when MySQL is used. SQLite works fine with non english characters.
But unfortunately my usecase needs MySQL.
I am happy to help/test/anyting else.
