ie defaults to chinese simplified (gb2312) 10 Years, 2 Months ago  
I have my site set to utf-8 encoding and it works for the most part, but when using ie and you click on the forum it defaults to (gb2312)and is unable to load the page. Firefox works beautifully it is just the forum.

Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

sorry I am not sure about that, but could you tell me exsactly how is your forum setting?
I have joomla 1.0.12 fireboard 1.0.3 and like here, I can\'t write in chinese or japanese...
I tried to convert everything in utf8 general or unicode but it doesn\'t seem to fix the problem....

Hi,

I am using Joomla! 1.0.13 Stable and fireboard 1.0.0-beta, my website www.mudidi.info works in firefox no problem. When viewing my site with internet explorer it views the site in utf-8 but when i click on the fireboard forum it defaults back to simplified chinese gb2312 . So i guess my problem is how to i get internet explorer to default to utf8 when viewing fireboard?

ok so you mean the language of fireboard is different? not the display in the messages themselves?
Then I guess this is due to chinese being first favored in your ie language choice and fireboard must have english as top priority no?

maybe, but how do i get fireboard to default to utf-8? i have saved all the index.php files in utf-8 but ie still defaults to simplified chinese gb2312 when viewing fireboard.

well if this is not the case when you go into firefox, then it is a problem with ie itself
go in ie setup in languages and tell your browser to use english as default. I think this is the most likely problem. It happens to me also I go on some sites I get french as default with ie, but english with firefox it just depends what priority you set in the browser itself. but I may be wrong I just think this is a likely explanation...

MM I just went to your website and I see perfectly in chinese the forum in both ie and firefox... By the way maybe then you can help me cause in my forum I can\'t write in chinese or other asian languages. Only in english and I don\'t know why. In joomla articles contents, I can perfectly write in chinese...
but I have 1.0.3 and it seems the latest release gave some trouble to people concerning writing with special languages

i think it must be something to do with your database. Before I installed fireboard i changed the settings in my database to accept utf8 and i haven\'t had any problems.

I found a solution to my particular problem, hope this helps out other people with the same problem:

Quote
Almost in all of the cases the problem may be caused by the apache (or other server) default encoding, that is preset. On some servers, this encoding is sent as a header in the cookie and causes issues. In such case, there is easy and fast solution:

- Open the file globals.php and at the end of it, right after the last
Code:

}

and right before
Code:

?>

put the following code:
Code:

header(\"Content-Type: text/html; charset=ENCODING\");

where ENCODING should be replaced by the encoding you desire.
