Hope to find a solution for a problem with my advanced guestbook 2.4.4. integrated in my coppermine 1.4.27 gallery at www.haraldlabout.nl

Since the beginning I have a problem that a 's entries (as in foto's) show up as 's (resulting in foto's).
Tried several changes in charset settings (all in UTF- and got a lot of support on the coppermine forum, see:

http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,56398.msg331316.html#msg331316

and

http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,64646.msg321140.html#msg321140

After all the trouble shooting in the last months I am almost sure there is something wrong with my SQL database and the guest book entries are handled wrong because of this.

Did anyone experience the same problem and could you solve this error.
I hope to receive some tips about this 's to 's problem.

Probably a conflict between the database charset, coppermine charset and the guestbook charset. You can edit the guestbook charset by editing the language file.

Carbonize,

Thanks for your reply.
Checked all charset settings of my coppermine files and advanced guestbook files, all set to UTF-8, same as my coppermine gallery settings.

When I check my SQL database with phpmyadmin i find th basic settings at UTF-8, collation latin1_swedish_ci.
I am told that this should be correct.

I'am not that experienced with SQL databases and using phpmyadmin so perhaps I do not look at the correct locations for the correct settings.

Any specific files to check in my SQL database and/or coppermine files?

Got a url so I can see the problem. Integrating a PHP script in to a CMS such as Coppermine often results in problems.

Carbonize:

Go to www.haraldlabout.nl
Visit "gastenbook" or "guestbook" (depends on browser settings) and see my test entry. (last entry made)
The text should be foto's.

Thanks for your time, much appreciated.

To be honest it would require a lot of recoding. The best option is to show the guestbook in an iframe so it's not affected by the other script.

On a different note not a good idea to have the script automatically select a language based on the browser as the person may not be on their own computer. Keep it the way you have but also have a way to change the language.
