View Full Version : comments does not work with swedish characters
08-22-2007, 07:26 PM
When I enter name "Å Ä Ö å ä ö" and comment "Å Ä Ö å ä ö" it turns up like this:
Name: Ã� Ã� Ã� Ã¥ Ã¤ Ã¶ Email:
Comment: Å Ä Ö å ä ö
I have checked the database and it is stored there like this:
message: Ã… Ã„ Ã– Ã¥ Ã¤ Ã¶
name: Ã… Ã„ Ã– Ã¥ Ã¤ Ã¶

When I look at the sql database I see that "message" is of type "text", while "name" is type "varchar(30)". Since åäö seems to work fine in "message", perhaps it is the different types that makes this error? What do you think?
Update: It turned out that the åäö characters are only messed up in Admin comments list. When I click "Publish" and look at the comments, the characters turn upp correctly, atleast in my browser, but the characters still look messed up in the database in phpMyAdmin. *confusion*
There was such problem in PP 1.5 and if I good remember it was fixed in 1.6.
