HELP WITH UTF8

Post by josebp » Fri 21 Jun 2019 10:06 am

Hello, I have problems with the coding of the pages in UTF8
In some pages I put "España" and it looks correct and in others I have to put "España" (it's an example)..
What do I have wrong to be able to use only the pages in UTF8?
The server where the domain is hosted is in UTF8 and it is very difficult to guess what I have to put in order to look good in Spanish.
Thank you.
Regards,
José Ramón

Hola, tengo problemas con la codificación de las páginas en UTF8
En algunas páginas pongo España y se ve correcto y en otras tengo que poner España (es un ejemplo).
Que es lo que tengo mal para poder utilizar unicamente las páginas en UTF8?
El servidor dónde está alojado el dominio está en UTF8 y es muy complicado acertar lo que tengo que poner para que se vea bien en español.
Gracias.
Saludos,
José Ramón

One for Ken (Saratoga) True ...

I thought 'World' templates were UTF8, obviously not.
Your index page says

Code: Select all

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
Edit: bad advice, see post below.
The other thing of course, any editing use a reputable code editor (eg. Notepad++) and make sure page is converted / edited / saved in UTF8

The Saratoga templates all use ISO languages (not UTF-8) natively. For Spanish, ISO-8859-1 is used.

When you edit the template files (.txt, .html, .php) make sure your editor is set to ANSI (or ISO-8859-1) and not UTF-8. Mixing in UTF-8 characters to the template will result is odd displays of the multi-byte special characters.
