Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery MaxGalleria » Accentuated characters and HTML tags problem

    Hi! First of all, this plugin is a great piece of work. However, there is a small problem in the latest version. I added 2 images today and I find that the accentuated character in French ( é à è ) do not show up in the Caption field. Same goes for most HTML tags.
    We can live with no strong characters, but French text without the accents does look a bit silly. We realize this was done to prevent malicious code being inserted in captions. But is there a way to at least allow the accentuated characters ?
    Thanks in advance,

    Where are you entering the caption text?

    I found a way around the problem: if I enter the texte in the “Add picture” window in the Media Gallery, it comes out fine. If I enter the text within the “Edit” window (clicking on the little pen tool in the Max Galleria window), then it comes out like this :
    Je suis Artiste pour la Paix parce que je suis profondément pacifiste, égalitaire et tolérante.
    Instead of this:
    Je suis Artiste pour la Paix parce que je suis profondément pacifiste, égalitaire et tolérante.
    The Media Gallery “Caption’ field will even accept some tags such as and <br />

    However, working in the confined space of that field is not as productive as being able to edit text in Max Galleria.

    Thanks for your attention!

    Thank you for the tip. I can look at the WordPress code to see if I can use the same functions in MaxGalleria.

    I did not find anything in the WordPress code that would be helpful in solving this. It seems to be a code page issue that can be changed by how the WordPress and the database it use are configured. See this article, https://codex.wordpress.org/Converting_Database_Character_Sets
