Yay. Unicode works again.

Postby the_power on Mon Aug 10, 2009 3:58 pm

While installing some completely unrelated software, I noticed that PHP had set 'mbstring.func_overload = 7' by default. Turns out this was a BAD THING, and caused the livinghistory.ie website to corrupt any non-ascii text. That is fixed, so you can now use Microsoft Smart Quotas, fadas, accents, circonflexes etc. to your hearts content.

Cuireann sé iontas orm!

Sa deireadh thiar thall tá sé maisithe agat. maith a fear. An gciallaíonn sé sin go bhfuil gach rud ar an suíomh trí Ghaeilge go dtí seo ceartaithe anois nó a bhfuil fadhbanna leosan go fóill?

Sorry, thought John had cúpla focal, was wondering now that the Unicode is fixed, will previous Irish language posts be fixed or still garbled, ta.

Alas, previously posts are still garbled. But at least they won't garble in future...
