Problems with umlauts

Postby VSS » Mon Sep 28, 2009 1:09 pm

Hi everybody,

i recently started using Testlink 1.8.3 with xampp 1.7.1 working in the background.

I would like to use the GUI in german. Unfortunatelly umlauts are not displayed correctly, while they are fine in the strings.txt
The mySQL table uses utf8_general_ci, browser is also set to uft8

Any ideas how to fix?

I will provide a screendump soon.

Hi,

I would like to resurrect the problem with German umlauts - the problem is that they are wrong displayed (buttons, labels and text).
What helps is setting the encoding in browser to UTF-8. This is very problematic, because I need to do it every time I start a browser I need by hand to change the encoding on every page. I have tried it on Firefox and IE.

The special/international characters like umlauts are encoded in UTF-8.

All mySQL tables use utf8_general_ci. When I view the special symbols with DB Visualiser those are correct encoded.
In config custom_config.inc.php file the encoding has been set to UTF-8:
Code: Select all
$tlCfg->charset = 'UTF-8';


Could you please help me with the problem?
