no commas on exporting email adresses

I have trouble with exporting mail feature in admin
( bb_admin.php?action=exportemails )

If I want to export mail adresses, I can't see commas between mail adresses. Instead of it, I see a square. I know, that browsers often show a square, if a character isn't in actual character-set.
I also see squares if I change to "tabs" between mail adresses.

But all other commas show fine in my forums...

what's wrong?

using miniBB version 2.0.3a

If you export email addresses ONLY they will be separated by the new linefeed (LF). If you export both usernames AND email addresses, there will be a comma or tab between username and email depending on what you choose.

In what program are you opening exported list so you see "squares"? In Notepad2, it is opened perfectly... In Windows Notepad there will be squares, because in general linefeed only is a Unix format. Windows format is carriage return AND linefeed (CR + LF). So if you want to fix this, look up in bb_admin.php the following line:

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.='<br />'; else $cont.="\n";

change it to

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.='<br />'; else $cont.="\r\n";

I opened that list in Firefox 2.0.0.1


Thanks for your suggestion, I will change that code!

Browser doesn't matter for sure. Try to update the code I've suggested... maybe I'll fix it also in the main core.

Now I changed it in that way:

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.=', '; else $cont.="\r\n";


So, I can directly copy that list in browser and paste email adresses into my email client.

That could be your custom solution ;-) Anyway it's ok if it works for you.

I thought carefully and will include my first suggestion into official release later.

I have new version...!

and it's already in bb_admin like this:

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.='<br />'; else $cont.="\r\n";

but when I export email in notepad appears like this:

email1@yahoo.com
email2@yahoo.com

when i changed to this:

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.='<br />'; else $cont.="\n";

it appears:

email1@yahoo.comemail2@yahoo.com

then I changed like this

if ($_POST['screen']==1) $cont.='<br />'; else $cont.="\n, ";

it's working :

email1@yahoo.com, email2@yahoo.com

is it ok?
