Warning: Non-US characters in user name (General)
I have a Swedish forum there some of the users have Swedish characters in their user names. I have now noticed that if two users have user names that looks alike but are different, they will not be able to login.
I can confirm this misbehaviour in one of
<ins>I have access to
</ins>. The reason is the use of the collation
utf8_general*. A blog entry (in german language) offers a solution, the use of the collation
In the case with the user name, it is a problem. But in general I think this is a very useful feature. For example, a danish user may search for a word with the letter Ø then the word contains the Swedish letter Ö.
It should be no problem to only change the collation of fields, where it is necessary.
