Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /home2/ …

  • Hey Guys,

    Just recently discovered that I can’t get my bbPress Forum to load. I get this error all down the page, and to the best of my knowledge, I haven’t changed a single thing since it last worked?

    Any help appreciated.

    Kind Regards,

    Cal :)

    I think this is due to the server using PHP4:

    http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/warning-cannot-yet-handle-mbcs-in-html_entity_decode

    What version bbPress did you install, did you integrate with WordPress, and what software is the server running?

    Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /hsphere/local/home/xxxxxx/adsearch.co.in/forum/bb-includes/wp-functions.php on line 113

    X-Powered-By: PHP/4.4.9

    Are you using PHP4? I thought that was the source of this problem.

    What version did you install?

    Hey guys, I’m getting the same problem, and my hosting is 1&1 and I’m sure they support PHP4. It is in my subfolder of the domain,

    http://www.ko-holic.com/bbpress

    Help!

    The problem is not that they SUPPORT PHP4, it’s that you WANT PHP5. Add this to your .htaccess if you’re at 1&1.

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

    That will force *.php files to be processed by PHP5. That should resolve the problem for you.

    I’m with godaddy.com

    It uses php 4.x by default, but supports PHP5 for .php5 files.

    I changes handle of .php files to PHP5 too.

    But I got the same error. What to do?

    Now I got an extra headache, my WP widget column disappeared.

    I’m switching back waiting suggestions.

    update: sorry, it was a wicked weather widget blockng sidebar, not PHP5 extention, but bbpress install problem remains

    I am also having the same issue, the .htaccess trick didn’t help either. any other ways of ensure the use of php5?

    I was able to fix the Error using the following .htaccess code:

    AddHandler x-httpd-php5 .php

    AddHandler x-httpd-php .php4

    I got the info here, since I am using a godaddy server.

    http://help.godaddy.com/article/1082

    So wait, does this mean BBpress is dropping support for PHP-4? Because WordPress is working just fine…. I’m also downgrading. Would have loved to see some kind of warning/note on the download file page that requirements have changed (if they have).

    We really should backport the fix that is in 1.0 to 0.9 for our international friends.

    I can’t remember what the function was that had the problem but I believe it was

    function htmlspecialchars_decode

    there may be others.

    Unfortunately those functions are not pluggable but you could try replacing them from 1.0 into 0.9 and use SVN to handle upgrades which might work around it.

    Made a note on TRAC http://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/1059

    Good news, Sam has backported the fix from 1.0 into 0.9 also.

    You can either download the 0.9 branch version or wait for 0.9.0.5

    Sorry, I copied the wrong message…

    How do I do that? I am not great with coding so I’m not really sure what to do.

    I’ve resolved the problem. Thanks.

    Thanks, PRB10 — this resolved my issue.
