View Full Version : Solved Posting directly as Russian, charset is off

24-10-17, 15:28
I have a CMS outside of vbulletin that I can post content with, I now have a need to post directly as russian but it is not working.

If I post natively from a text doc that was sent to me I get

Онлайн казино Вулкан: 1000 и 1 персональный бон

I tried pasting into google translate as they display the entered text re-encoded and copied/ pasted that and got mostly question marks.

Russian page specified lang="ru" charaterset is UTF-8

The odd part is inside me editor its all displaying correctly

I know this is outside the Vbet tool but would love some insight on how vbet does it on my russian pages perfectly after translations.

Most probably your database have different encoding, so when you put good text there it is taken as something else. vBET knows does database is in UTF-8 and text can be stored as it is, or it has different encoding and we have to store text in special way (see function vbet_encodeToSafeUTF8).
