UTF-8 - Default encoding


Recommended Posts

Hello to all,


I need do the translation WHCMS to Lithuanian language, But can’t find how to set default encoding to utf-8.


Thanks in advance :-)


Yes theres more ppl need this available for UTF-8 charset, wheres whmcs shows error if encoded language file is in UTF-8

Hi Matt,


That is part of the solution, but the bigger issue is that the language files are encoded in whatever PHP uses to represent strings (ISO-8859-1, I believe?) and not UTF-8. Thus, when you try to use the smarty template strings in a xhtml file that is charset=UTF-8 the ISO-8859-1 strings from the language files appear as garbage. One solution is to encode the problematic letters in the language files as HTML entities e.g.: á as á but that is a pain in the behind. C'est la vie, I suppose, but it would be nice to have native support for UTF-8 strings in WHMCS for values that come from the DB such as client info and such. :)


Cheers from Panama.
