Icelandic characters not showing up correctly

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

When I recive an email from contact_us.php Icelandic characters in the 'From' & 'Subject' lines are not showing up correct. Ie. 'á', 'ð' becomes 'X' etc.

 

Can I configure the shop to fix this? If so, what file and line do I need to change?

 

Cheers

have you changed your language in the language.php file.

 

If you used the english language to translate you would go to includes/languages.english.php and on line 19

 

@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1'); and change your language from english to your language code.

I tried to change the following language parameters without any luck

// look in your $PATH_LOCALE/locale directory for available locales
// or type locale -a on the server.
// Examples:
// on RedHat try 'en_US'
// on FreeBSD try 'en_US.ISO_8859-1'
// on Windows try 'en', or 'English'
@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');

// charset for web pages and emails
define('CHARSET', 'iso-8859-1');

 

The values I tried,

is_IS.iso88591

is_IS.ISO8859-1

is_IS.ISO_8859-1

is_IS.ISO8859-1

 

Any other suggestions?

I tried to change the bold values,

 

@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'en_US.ISO_8859-1');

 

define('CHARSET', 'iso-8859-1');

 

These are the values I tried,

is_IS.iso88591

is_IS.ISO8859-1

is_IS.ISO_8859-1

is_IS.ISO8859-1

 

Any other suggestions?

One more time. YOU ARE NOT SETTING YOUR LANGUAGE!

 

 

en_US is for english

 

what is your LANGUAGE code? you will just have to do a search on the internet if you do not know your language code as it would seem no one here knows what your LANGUAGE CODE IS.

I know it's not beeing set correctly, but I have tried to change en_US to is_IS without any luck :(

so what is every islandic web designer using as their charset code.

 

while on the internet viewing a web site with islandic words, look at the source code in the browser and see what they use. Do you have to use a language pack for your browser?

Some websites are using utf-8 and others iso-8859-1.

The funny thing or not so funny thing is that, all Icelandic characters are showing up correctly except in the 'from' & 'subject' in the e-mail and also on the webpage it self.

My last post was misleading. Icelandic characters are being displayed correctly on the webpage itself.
