Hello MiniBB,

Great job on the product.

I am wondering though, I have tried to test this program in a Japanese environment, but can not seem to make the login(username) accept a name in Japanese.

Which areas do we need to touch and edit in order to make the program accept any form of symbols as part of the username? of course, excluding the | symbol.

In order to make japanese language to be detected automatically by browser you have to edit $l_meta setting in your language file. But that's not the point.

Our board supports any languages supported by PHP, mySQL & PostgreSQL accordingly. So.. maybe the problem is with your local mySQL server or PHP language settings?

or maybe MD5 crypting algorithm ( http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1321.html ) doesn't accept japanese symbols.

I dont think you understood the question.

can not seem to make the login(username) accept a name in Japanese.

I see that usernames must be A-Za-z_.

Are you starting to get my drift?

I guess, first you need to include correct default encoding meta-setting, and second, you need to patch setup_options and insert all necessary symbols in $userRegName variable (it is regular expression).

encoding is done, as that was not my question on the board. but thanks for the check point. it was one of the first steps completed.

now, as i would like to know, is there anyways that i can allow all characters and symbols, as there are over 50,000 characters in the japanese language, and it would be almost impossible to list each and everyone.

thanks.

Try to go to the bb_functions.php, find function checkUserData(), and change this line:

$userRegExp = "^[".$userRegName."]{3,40}\$";

to:

$userRegExp = "^[^|]{3,40}\$";

for allowing all symbols except |. Hope this helps.

How do you change this expression to include other symbols such as "." or "-"? Or, alternatively, where can I find an online documentation to look up myself? I searched in the MySQL and PHP manuals, but the regular expression there looked different somehow. I'm not sure if this was the right place to look.

$userRegName='_-A-Za-z0-9. ';

Thank you! Does it have to be in a particular order? Is $userRegName='_-A-Za-z0-9. '; the same as $userRegName='_A-Za-z0-9._ '; ?

There is no matter in order, but you better learn regular expressions as themselves :) [it is not described nor in PHP, nor in mySQL manual, this thing is completely different].

I changed the variable $userRegName like you suggested, but keep getting the following error message Warning: Compilation failed: range out of order in character class at offset 4 in d:\_PHP\phpWeb\keele\minibb\bb_func_checkusr.php on line 7
Apparently changing the variable in the setup_options.php is not enough.

I have just tried to set up the following:

$userRegName='_A-Za-z0-9-. ';

and everything is working fine, I can register username with dot and dash.

I am saying once again: learn regular expressions. It's not a simple thing. If you are not sure, what you doing - don't do it.

I will. But how can it be that i get an error message? Did you (like me) only change the variable in the setup_options.php? i.e. replaced '_A-Za-z0-9 ' by '_A-Za-z0-9-. '?

Did you change something in the bb_func_checkusr.php? I kind of think that it must be changed too ...
