Turkish character problem

Postby dereque » Tue Oct 23, 2007 5:01 pm

I have a problem with turkish characters. There is no problem about displaying turkish characters on my website. All my ini files has been saved in UTF-8 format. The only problem that i have when i want to add article or content to joomla turkish characters transforms into strange characters. Also when i look by phpadmin from my database is same. I did everything that i know for solving this. But i cant. Pls help me

Looks like your database may be badly set.
Did you create the db before installing RC3/last SVN or did Joomla install did it for you?
Make sure it is utf8-general.ci

Also, you may want to post here your system info and some snapshot of the db tables.

Omg. What a mistake. Joomla installation created database for me and is chosing latin-1 for collation. I made new joomla installation and created database with utf-8 and there is no problem with any turkish chars. But i changed collation and charset to utf-8 for my old database and still is not accepting turkish chars. I dont know what can i do at this point.

I don't think I have a DB problem, I am an newbie creating a site for my family. Installed Joomla 1.5 DocMan on top of it. Installed the turkish stable character set. Works fine except some characters show as "�"

I have no idea what to do at this point. I may use the English one instead for Docman.

If the wrong displays concerns some docman language files, it means they have to be saved as utf8 NO BOM.

Hi,
New to the forum so apologies if answer already elsewhere. I also had problem with Turkish characters in Joomla. I could enter them in FCK editor but after it saved to database the Turkish characters had disappeared. I checked database in phpMyAdmin and it was indeed UT8-general but when I checked individual tables they were not. I modified collation of jos_content (where the problem was in my case) and it now seems to save the Turkish characters correctly.
Hope this helps
Good luck :)

If ALL the tables and ALL their fields are not also UTF8, you will get problems soon or later.
