Support » Plugin: WP Simple Booking Calendar » Special Chars and translation

  • Hello,

    I bought the premium version of the plugin but I have two issues :

    The first one is when I type some text in the description next to a day in the field “wpsbc-input-description”, this text appears to not render special chars correctly.

    For instance if I type “Congrès” it renders only in the front end in the data tooltip like this : “Congrès”, and it is the same with all special chars like à , é , è , î …

    I don’t have this issue anywhere else in the site.
    I need the text to render correctly, how can I do that please ?

    My next issue is because the site is in French and English, I need to be able to translate this description too.
    I am using “qTranslate-X” plugin for this.

    But if I write in the description [:en]Holidays[:fr]Congés[:] , the shortcode is not working… Any ideas on how I can perform this please.

    I cannot make two different calendars for each language.

    Thank you very much.

  • Hi your guys,

    so for the text in wpsbc-input-description, I have the analog problem in wp booking system concerning german umlauts? Just as a remark form my side, it is not the same plugin, but the same problem

    For the translation issue it would be solved if using the translation function for printing the description.

    For the special chars issue maybe incoding and decoding it with htmlentities().

    Maybe I can change this in the core but what about future updates ?

    Speaking update, I can I know there is an available update, does it create an message in the admin section ?
    Does the link I got the first time will be a link that goes to the updated plugin download ?

    Thank you.

    I found that there is htmlentities() that is used to output the description.
    Actually on localhost it is working but not on production, I guess this is a server or PHP version or something else that is in cause.

    For the translation, I had to manually add a the translation function __() to output the description in order to make it work and swith to french / english.

    Hope this will be added to a future update.



    Hi there,

    This is really strange, because this never happened before. We’ll try to reproduce this and come up with a fix.

    Can you also send us a note at
