View Full Version : Special characters on image title
05-06-2005, 09:16 PM
I had to change a couple of image names from my photoblog, because I could not use the "c cedilla" (&ccdil;) or the apostrophe (as in seven o' clock).
Maybe it is not a bug, but just that I don't know how to enter (encode) those special characters to render once in the browser (html entities, url encoded, escape sequence, ...)

read the forum postings.
I spent more than one weekend to make PP UTF-compliant.
So you must check:
- which PP version? Since Vresion 1.4 we are completely UTF-8.....
- which codepage is activated in the headers of your templates? is it really UTF-8 or "automatic" ?????
- which encoding is activated in your browser when you check your pages? Automatically or UTF-8 ????
if this is so and you still get wrong characters, then you should check with your hoster which character set the MYSQL tables accept... that is one thing we cannot change...
if that is not the case then you should show how the server (Apache?) is configurated, some servers overwrite the character-encodings of the websites...
did you read the readme's which are in the \doc-folder? I think I gave as much information there as possible
somehow I am tired of that
I have had the same problems, except that it was mainly with the RSS feeds. As Connie suggested instead of using the characters I used the special characters. However I find that if you go back and try to edit the post, the title will get cut off at the part which the symbol appears. Eg. "What's Up" becomes "What".

if you have the most recent version (1.4.1) and your browse is reading UTF-8 and as Connie said your mySQL is ok to read special characters there should be no problem. Just watch out for the RSS feed as sometimes you may experience an 'xml parsing error'... this can be fixed easily with the &something; format.
