SOLVED:Punjabi Text is not displaying by joomla. just ?????

Post by satvir » Wed Aug 17, 2011 9:18 am

Greetings,

I have installed Joomla 1.5, then installed "mod_indicwriter" for punjabi. I am able to type in Punjabi but when i save my article from front end than nothing happens all i can see is ???? ???? ?????????? ?? ???? ???? ??. i dont know what to do now.

I have already changed Database Collation to utf =8 and already put this file in my index.php

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
But no progress.

Please Help .

Thanks

Suggest creating a new database with the collation sequence of utf-8 and see what happens.

For this, you have to export the database content, create a new database with the collation sequence of utf-8, import the exported database content.

What is stored in the database table jos_content? Are you seeing Punjabi characters or question marks?

You could use phpMyAdmin for this.

Are you developing the site in localhost or remote host?

What I noticed was that some of the tables were having the collation sequence utf-8 and others were having the collation sequence latin1_swedish_ci.

So, I created a new database of with the collation sequence utf-8. Now your site is pointing to the new database.

Review your site and let us know your comments.

Note: I have changed the title of 2 articles to Punjabi and added the text in Punjabi to both of these articles. However, I had left the ???? text string in those articles for you to see the difference.
