Support » Plugin: Frontend Checklist » Hebrew

  • Resolved mayabi


    this plugin is exactly what i need! However, my blog is in Hebrew, and even though i managed to make the Hebrew letters work (changed the charset to Unicode), when i try to print the checklist, i still see question marks instead of Hebrew items in the PDF file the plugin generates.

    Do you have an idea of where the problem might be?

    Thank you!

    Hi mayabi,

    the checklist makes use of the fpdf library to generate the PDF-file. Unforunately, this library does not support unicode, so it is not possible to display non-latin characters 🙁

    I would suggest you create the PDF manually. I know, this destoys a bit the “magic” of the plugin, but the HTML-checklist with the saved status should still work.

    I may find the time to include a better PDF solution in the future, but I can’t make any promises.

    Sorry, I wish I had a cooler and more elegant answer 🙁


    Hey Jonas,

    thanks a lot for your detailed answer, hopefully there will be a solution sometime in the future.

    Thanks for the help, appreciate it!




    Hi Maya,

    I’m now creating a blog in Hebrew as well, and would like to use this (great!) plugin. Can you please explain to me, where and what you changed exactly, to view the checklist in Hebrew in pages or posts?

    Thanks in advance!



    Hi Liora,
    I went to the phpMyAdmin page and changed the tables of the plugin from Swedish to Unicode. That did the trick.
    But again, the PDF version is not gonna work well 🙁



    Hi Maya,
    Thanks so much for your quick reply and help!
