[Resolved] [Plugin: WP Photo Album Plus] cannot Set Character set to UTF-8

    there is “set Character set to UTF-8” in “Miscellaneous” in “the wp photo album pro settings”. I’m checking the box, and then press “Save settings” but nothing changes. Even the checkbox appears “unchecked”. How can I set character set to utf-8?

    What does it say at the top of the settings page? I mean the line like:
    Database revision: 241. WP Charset: UTF-8. WPPA Charset: UTF-8.

    It says: “Database revision: 243. WP Charset: UTF-8. WPPA Charset: default.”

    Are you sure the default charset of your sql is not utf-8?
    If the default charset in your (hosting providers) sql config is utf-8, you need no conversion, it is utf-8 by default.

    I just found the error.

    on line 251 of wppa_settings.php it reads:
    if (!options_error) {

    this should be:
    if (!$options_error) {

    Please change it (add the dollar sign) and try again. This will fix it.

    Sorry for this typo!

    everything’s charset is utf-8 in my project.

    I made the changes you wrote, but nothing changed 🙁 Is there any other solution to set the charset to utf8?

    I tested it on my last site where it was not done yet and it worked.
    If you supply me an email address (opajaap at opajaap.nl) i will send you the fixed wppa_settings.php
