Solved (#3632) : Why does a diamond with a questionmark in it � appear

Post by Paulostge on April 15th 2018, 2:02 pm

Hello again, as seen from the title I have a problem with the Greek characters.

For example:

https://www.thegreeksenergy.com/t72682-topic#401879



This is done in a code I have created with the name "Random themes"

I tried to change the following: (overall_header)


Code:
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset={S_CONTENT_ENCODING}" />

in

Code:
 <meta charset="UTF-8">

But it did not change anything...

hello

maybe this

Code:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

this specific character � is usually the sign of an invalid (non-UTF8) character showing up in an output (like a page) that has been declared to be UTF-8

The problem is ultimately a Premium upgrade. There is also a complex search

Hello,

You can change your forum codification to UTF-8 by following this path:

ACP > General > Pages encoding > Send a request

Spoiler:

This way you won't see as often as now those icons Smile You will only see this option if you're the founder, and if your forum is not already in UTF-8.

Best regards.

I don't speak a single word of Greek, but if the admin panel doesn't give you that option, it means your forum is already in UTF-8 and there shouldn't appear those icons Confused

Is that column you showed in the first post the "Last topic" widget or is it something you added on your own from an external source?
