Special Characters
« on: April 24, 2019, 03:55:32 PM »
Hello everyone

Im new to this forum. I'm having some problem with some characters that Portugues people use.
I bought the pt extension but the problem  is not solved still.
I've searched but still didnt got any idea.

So whenever i try to use some special characters like "ã" "á" "ç" , im using this entity codes , ã etc etc . So problem was solved, but now whenever my costumers create their account and they use this special characters. My email order details , come with this problems.

Example : Rua José Antunes Guima

Try to replicate issus on http://demo.abantecart.com
In my opinion it is something related to your server because AbanteCart use everywhere UTF8

Found Solution: View/default/template/form/form_open

<form
        id="<?php echo $id ?>"
        <?php if($action) { ?>action="<?php echo $action ?>"<?php } ?>
        accept-charset="ISO-8859-1"
        <?php if($method) { ?>method="<?php echo $method ?>"<?php } ?>
        <?php if($enctype) { ?>enctype="<?php echo $enctype ?>"<?php } ?>
        <?php echo $attr ?>
>

i added this :  accept-charset="ISO-8859-1"

I think it will not resolve all your issues.
You have to change charset globally
