Hello. My site is in Russian, and when I configured it successfully, a problem with the site caption on the LOGO appeared. The russian symbols on the LOGO are not appeared correctly. The charset is utf-8 and all of the other Russian content on the site is Ok.
What I need to do for the correct appearance of the Russian caption of the site on the LOGO picture?

The free Bitstream fonts distributed with ocPortal, in data/fonts unfortunately don't support Russian.

Replace data/fonts/Vera.ttf with Verdana.ttf (or similar file name) from your own computer. We don't have copyright to distribute the fonts Microsoft and Apple license/cross-license.

A similar problem happens for other fonts, but they are all equivalent to ones you have in Windows and Mac machines.

To be honest though, you're best off just making a logo manually.

  • 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 ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.
