i’m robert and a newby in PHP and Kirby.
Eight weeks ago i had the idea to make my own homepage. After learning HTML and CSS I decidet to change to a CMS, because i want to make the homepage visible for PC’s and mobile devices wich was too much work only in HTML and CSS.
To understand kirby was very easy (its a very nice tool!) and the basic understanding of PHP i got too.
But i have some hard trouble with my German characters. The main Problem is, that my homepage can’t show Ä,Ö,Ü and ß.
Charset=UTF8 is in the .htacces file, at the header of every snippet/template and everywhere else. If i create a textfile with the Panel, everything works finde, but when i create a Textfile a editor i only see �-characters.
I analysed the textfiles created by the Panel and the Windows editor. As example the “ä” is Hex(C3 BC) [Ã¤] at the Panel Editor, and Hex(E4) [ä] at the Windows Editor.
Now i use Notepad++, but my Kirby can not show any other ä, ö, ü, i created.
I created some text-conted with the "Text: "-Tag in a textfile and some other contet with the “1.jpg.de.txt” File, relating to a Picture. All the Picture-related textfiles AND subfolder textfiles have the problem with my ä, ö, ü.
Do you have any ideas how to solve my problem? I don’t use the pany anymore, because after understanding kirby its much faster to create content via an editor.
