[Solved]: Charset problem
« on: May 02, 2009, 07:27:10 pm »


I have made a search filed on my sites first page, The code to the searchfield look like this.

Code: [Select]
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="" xml:lang="se" lang="se" dir="ltr">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="scripts.js"></script>
<table align="left">
<form method="post" action="" name="searchcpg">
<input size="37" type="text" name="search" maxlength="255" value="" class="textinput" />
<input type="submit" value="Snabbsk i arkivet" class="button" />
<input type="hidden" name="album" value="search" />
<input style="display:none" type="checkbox" name="title" id="title" class="checkbox" checked="checked" />
<input style="display:none" type="checkbox" name="caption" id="caption" class="checkbox" checked="checked" />
<input style="display:none" type="checkbox" name="keywords" id="keywords" class="checkbox" checked="checked" />

When i put , in Sweden vi have , in the field and klick on the search button. Coppermine read the letter as "�".
Some ideas to solve this problem.

You can't put one html page inside another like that. Pages can only have one <html> tag and only one charset definition. That page is already set to iso-8859-1. You need to change that page to utf-8 for it to work.

Just another gentle reminder here:
Upgrade Your Coppermine Gallery Today!

  SVN version info:
  Coppermine version: 1.4.19
  $Revision: 4392 $
  $LastChangedBy: gaugau $
  $Date: 2008-04-16 09:25:35 +0200 (Mi, 16 Apr 2008) $

You can get hacked with such an outdated version.

(and also,) the pages had an odd look with a mix of languages
