Hello,

Is there a reason why some emojis work in topic title and some don't?

This one works for example:

Code:
&#8987&; #x231B;
⌛

Most of them don't, this one for example:

Code:
😇 😇
😇

The problem is that forumotion converts & into its unicode representation, which is &amp. This is what break the emojis.

They do this for security, for example if someone writes the title <script>/*random malicious javacript code*/</script>, that javascript code won't be executed by the browser, since < and > will be converted into their unicode representation, and the title will become &lt;script&gt;/*random malicious javacript code*/&lt;/script&gt;.

That being said, as far as I know, there's no security issue with displaying & unencoded. I can write a javascript code to allow your emojis to display, if you let me know your forum link!
