Events Manager
Event manager and encoding (6 posts)

    Hello

    I'm starting to use Event manager, and I've got a problem using the export to CSV function : all the letters with accents (such as é, è, à, very frequent letters in France) are corrupted in the .CSV
    For example, the word "événement" (event in French) turns into "√©v√©nement"

    Is there a way to change, or fix, the character encoding used by the plugin ?

    Does anybody had the same problem ?

    Thank you

    Regards,

    I tried your text and seems okay with my test site; can you check your site encoding?

    I looked into this not long ago, and this is actually a problem with Excel and encoding. If you open up the csv file in a text editor, you can confirm this as chances are the text is correctly encoded there.

    @agelonwl : My site encoding is ITF8, but
    @Marcus : you're right, the text opens with accents in TextEdit. I'll try to fix the issue with Excel, now that I know the plugin isn't the cause.

    Thanks to both of you for this quick answer.

    Regards

    I found a quick workaround for the Excel issue : Ditch Excel and import the CSV to Google Docs. I just tried and it works, without encoding corruption.
