phreakphreak VanillaAPP - White label iOS and Android App MVP

Hi @R_J,

I was very happy that you adress this problem with your plugin, thanx a lot. In the German language and especially in Switzerland Umlauts are often used.

I installed the plugin as described under 2.0.18.9/10.

  • bootstrap.after.php.template is copied
  • settings set and saved

But it still doesn't work.

I' also sent you a link as private message so you see proof. Do you have any ideas what could be wrong? Maybe the plugin is just for 2.1+?

Thanx and greetz

    You have copied bootstrap.after.php.template and renamed it to bootstrap.after.php, right?
    It must have that code in it:

    <?php if (!defined('APPLICATION')) exit();
    
    Gdn::FactoryInstall('MentionsFormatter', 'UmlautMentionsFormatter', NULL, Gdn::FactoryInstance);
    

    Do you have checked that your config has a line like $Configuration['Garden']['User']['ValidationRegex'] = '\d\w_ äöü'; in it?

    Oh, thanx that was it. I forgot to rename it to "bootstrap.after.php". Sorry i'm a bit confused these days. :) Thanx, this function was needed nor for years. ;)

    Yes it look as if it could be a real annoyance.
    I think spaces in usernames should be avoided, but disallowing special characters feels like being back in the 1980s ;)

    at least you said the 1980's. because if you said the 1960's and could remember, you weren't really there. think about that one. You know what they say, "if you can remember the 60's you weren't really there."

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
