this is a really nice plugin.

however, i have got some problems with the german umlauts when I try to restore a backup from one webspace (funpic) at another one (cwcity). I do this because funpic is not so steady as it should be.

Does anybody know such problems? i guess it has something to do with the chairset but i dont have a clue how to solve it. the target mysql database uses the utf-8 chairset. Is there anybody who can give me a hint? if you need some more informations tell me.

thanks michael

Both databases (and subsequently both dumps) need to have the same collation. However, this plugin can't be used to restore dumps, so what you ask is beyond the scope of this thread. You shouldn't try to hijack it. Additionally, we have board rules that you agreed to respect. One of them says that you need to post a link to your gallery in each thread you post in no matter what. But then again, we can't really help you in converting your dumps and changing the collation of a database - I suggest asking your webhost for support (if it's a paid webhost who you actually can ask questions).

srry, i just thought of asking the persons who coded the plugin, because they should better know how it works than my web provider. And posting a link refering to my homepage would not solve the problem I guess. Anyway it is www.michelon.cwsurf.de?cat=4 the album "Südschweden".

Clicking on that link returns a 404 not found, so no: posting an invalid, not working link indeed doesn't help. ::)

well, i solved the problem partially by importing the backup with the charset latin1. however, the links still arent displayed correct. Here ü is replaced by %FC for example.
the gallery is still available at http://michelon.cwsurf.de/index.php?cat=4

Can't replicate. Works fine for me.
