When using German Umlauts, like "März" for March, admin statistics fail because xml not properly formatted.


File: adminzone/pages/modules[_custom]/admin_stats.php


if (fwrite($file,$graph)<strlen($graph)) warn_exit(do_lang_tempcode('COULD_NOT_SAVE_FILE'));


if (fwrite($file,utf8_encode($graph))<strlen($graph)) warn_exit(do_lang_tempcode('COULD_NOT_SAVE_FILE'));

Really the files should be referencing their correct character set (we can't assume ocPortal can convert character sets, it depends what extensions are installed - utf8_encode assumes an origin of ISO-8859-1), so this is the official fix:

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
