what is your charset? set at in your languages/<my language>.php

define('CHARSET''xxx')

 

Actually, I think this is correct, web pages should contain html_entities. Does it "look" ok from the browser?

Hi charset is utf-8 all the files and in database.

Thanks for fast replay

ISO-8859-2 is pretty much unsupported. Neither htmlspecialchars nor html_entities support it.

 

I will probably recode KissMT using a wrapper for these functions that will bypass encoding if the charset is ISO-8859-2.

As I said. the characters should be converted to html entities or the page wouldn't validate, it is perfectly acceptable to search engines.

I have just updated the latest revision to hopefully support ISO-8859-2, I'm not going to upload the revision just yet but if you are interested in testing to see if it works for you then I will email a download link.

Hi Robert

is there any chance to disable or update KissMT so the characters show how they are and not like "Přísně tajné" I have no problem with the validating before so will be much better if they show correctly

thanks for help

Polak, this shouldn't be changed, it is perfect. All web pages should be output as html entities.

This is an admin setting.

 

If you have not added the database install (which you can do without adding the rest of the addons by the way) then the settings are in ..

 

catalog/includes/modules/kiss_meta_tags/includes/init.php

 

As standard the setting is ..

 

  /**
 * XHTML tag output - string true / false
 */
 @define( 'KISSMT_XHTML_OUTPUT', 'false' );

 

As most people do not run XHTML sites it is set as standard as HTML, if you change it to 'true' it will output XHTML tags.

 

If your doctype is not XHTML you should use the standard tags.

Hello

Bravo and congratulations for this work!!

I am in France and we have accented characters like: é è ç à for example.

In the source code of the page I have eg

"Mary à tout prix" for "Mary à tout prix"

or

"Réalisation Bobby Farrelly" for "Réalisation Bobby Farrelly"

or

"Lhistoire de" for "L'histoire de"

 

Have you fix for this?

 

In title of the page (not code source) all is good

"Mary à tout prix-DVD-TSAB-Comedie-Films et Dvd-by Fox-Mary à tout prix"

 

 

 

Thank you

Francois

Hi Francois

 

Thanks for the kind words.

 

Mary à tout prix" for "Mary à tout prix

 

Is in fact correct. The source code should be html entities but of course when browsing the actual page with a web browser the characters should look as normal.

 

html entities are required for a page to validate XHTML and ensure that pages are rendered correctly.

 

Another reason to use html entities is security.

 

Printing to screen the following: -

<div>testing</div>

 

Results in ..

 

testing

 

As the html (or possibly javascript) has been parsed by the browser.

 

However ..

 

<div>testing</div>

 

Results in ..

 

<div>testing</div>

 

As the html has not been parsed.

No new version needs to be uploaded this is just for your information.

Changelog:


  •  
  • Wrapped the htmlentities and html_entity_decode functions to allow a bypass for ISO-8859-2 which is not supported by either htmlspecialchars or htmlentities.
  • Added Information Pages module.
  • Added full set of modules for Newsdesk.

 

If anyone needs the changes for ISO-8859-2 or the addon modules for Information Pages or Newsdesk just send me a PM and I'll send a download link.

Hi Robot,

 

Your contrib seems really great but I have a question :

 

I have a Url rewriting contrib and all my url are (normally) different for each languages of my website :

 

For exemple : A product is www.com/english-exemple-p-152.html or www.com/french-exemple-p-152.html

 

Since few weeks, for some pages, Google takes this URL : www.com/p-152.html or www.com/english-exemple-p-152.html for the french page.

 

I want to have a solution to inform Google than the canonical URL of a page is www.com/french-exemple-p-152.html (for the french pages instead of www.com/english-exemple-p-152.html when Goole index the wrong url) or www.com/french-exemple-p-152.html when Google index a wrong url like www.com/p-152.html.

 

About the languages : I'll open different websites for each language so I finally need more a solution to "clean" the google index a give him, fro each dynamical page, the url I made (URL from the data base).

 

May your contrib do that ?

It will yes, all of the pages will have a canonical element so page www.com/french-exemple-p-152.html would have a canonical link pointing to that page.

Yes . . KissMT will request a brand new seo url from the system for the canonical link using index.php?products_id=152 as long as seo urls produces a good link then the canonical link will be correct.

 

Are you using that Magic Seo Urls thing for your multi languages? because Ultimate Seo Urls 5 PRO will be released relatively soon and is looking for beta testers.
