Hello people.
I have made web site in Serbian language (cyrillic) which demands UTF-8 support.
I have tried to entered cyrillic letters in poll administration, but it seems like it does not support it.
Do you have any hint how to overcome this problem.
It is very urgent.

Thank you in advance!
Kind regards
Milan

I have not managed to do that.
Here is the description:
My HTML page where I invoke Advanced Poll script 2.0.3 looks like this:

<HTML>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
</head>
<BODY>
<!-- This PHP code includes the poll in your page (So you can SEE it). Place this where you want the poll to be displayed -->
<?php
include_once "booth.php";
echo $php_poll->poll_process("newest");
?>
</BODY>
</HTML>

However, if I create new poll in admin section and enter all cyrillic characters (for poll question and options), options are rendered well, but question are not. Instead of valid cyrillic characters I get:
Ко ће бити првак &#108

Any hint?
Thank you
Kind regards

You have to make the admin section utf-8 as well otherwise the charset of the stored data wil conflict with the output.

Thank you.
Actually there are two files where utf-8 charset should be specified:
1. the php file (embedded in web site) which invokes advanced poll php script
2. language specific php inside lang folder e.g english.php.

Kind regards

Basically every page on your site needs to be using the same charset.
