I am trying to install the Greek language module to my webshop from the Osc contribution but my shop went down before to some strange error. Any know which iso code i have to put for the Greek language in the admin module? Until now I found 2 different: GR and EL.....which one is it?

Any know if i should change some scripts or something for the greek module? I have english as my main language and will continue with that

 

Hope any can help

Changing following setting in the file: catalog/admin/includes/languages/greek.php

 

define('CHARSET', 'iso-8859-1');

 

to

 

define('CHARSET', 'iso-8859-7');

 

enables you to add Greek characters without a problem in your admin

 

You also need to make changes in

 

@setlocale(LC_TIME, 'de_DE.ISO_8859-1'); ..this is for German language..you need to make change for Greek language

Thank you!

 

Ps. i changed the tag CHARSET to 8859-7 but the Euro Symbol does not appear. Instead, i see a vertical box. Any idea?

Greek letters take too long space. Go to phpmyadmin and change the VARCHAR of the description or what ever you wanr to change to a larger number. If it is 34 change it to 64 or even 100. It worked on mine.

Why is it looking for a file called gree.php? check one more ime your admin settings when installing the language. Did you type in the correct names?

Lets keep talking in english so that others can participate too

 

The varchar value of a field of your database can not be changed via admin. You need to go to your database directly, via phpMyAdmin, and do the changes there. You will need to change fields such as products name, category name etc and wherever you have problems with the field length.

 

(select table, select field, press edit (pencil symbol) change the varchar value)

Hello. I just installed the greek language, using the two files you are describing above, but when changing to Greek language, I see symbols everywhere instead of greek letters.

I tried changing the code page by changing the define command in the php file, but nothing.

 

Can you please help me? Maybe I need non-UTF8 greek files?
