Yeah... That would be the problem.

Delete it and upload the file that I gave you to the blocks folder (saving it as block-Administration.php)

Then add it.

This is another one of FB's (nuke's so called author) screw ups.

and the same error when I go to edit it it shows ? marks when I switch it back to western it changes bac kto the bullet I know it is encoding. how do I fix encoding on phpnuke

not on the block u gave me let me upload it.

ok nevermind your block has the same error and I cna't delete the other administration block like i said 1 million times IT IS THE ENCODING WHEN I SWITCH IT EVERYTHING GOES BACK TO NORMAL HOW DO I FIX THE ENCODING.

and when I look at the source from my web browser it says the encoding is the western one but the browser picks it up as UTF

could it be a problem with my server cause this happens on all sites with a content management system or forum.

Okay... To address your issues.

1) You failed to follow the procedures defined in my post. Now, you must go into phpmyadmin and delete the non-compliant administration block manually before you can use my provided administration block.
1a) Open your database with phpMyAdmin
1b) Browse "PREFIX_blocks"
1c) Delete the "Administrator" block.
Then go back into your Nuke administration panel and add my block.

2) Please note that a Period in ISO-8859-1 is a period in UTF8. While yes, your encoding is sending mixed signals, MY block would appear normally in either character set encoding, versus FB's non-compliant block.

3) You have never provided ANY server information, but yes, it could be a problem with your server. I'm taking it that you are not using a shared host but are instead hosting your own files.

In that scenario, you MAY be running MySQL 4.1 and thus all of your database functions and the interface are (because of how you installed) UTF-8 based. Not just the data, but the entire server structure.

If (I'm guessing here because you haven't provided any server datails) that is in fact the case, you need to read: Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login!

Now.. I should note that the best thing to do is to provide detailed information.

What version of PHP?
What version of MySQL?
What O/S?
Etc...

Normally, none of this is an issue... but before I get too far.
IF...(and I say if)... you are running PHP5, you should be aware that PHP-Nuke is not fully compatible with PHP5, especially the phpbb forums module. You should also be aware that phpbb stand-alone is also not compatible with PHP5. (Hence the reason why Nuke isn't compatible)

when I said period I meant bullet.

Yes I host my own files I went into the apache config changed AddDefaultCharset UTF-8 to the same thing but instead of UTF-8 ISO-8859-1. now it works so ha I didn't have to do any of your wild steps just a simple change in the apache config. I told you it was the Charset 1 million times and that it was set correctly in the document the one thing failed to check was how it was set on the server.

Well, I'm glad you worked out your issues and there is a percieved happy ending.

Please be aware though, this is NOT an Apache server support website, nor for phpBB stand-alone but rather is dedicated to PHP-Nuke support (though we do try to help in those other areas where possible).

I do want to point out that if you had initially identified that:
a) You built your own server
b) You had just installed Apache with "localhost" defaults in a PHP5/MySQL 4.1 environment.
c) Your localhost config reported a UTF8 build
We would have answered your issue in the first post. Providing information is critical in a support environment and to date, unfortunately, little or no specific information was provided about your server environment. I mean, you didn't even say that it was PHP5 until your last post; hence, why you were given the answers you were given.

Next, please be aware that while it may look like it is running fine under PHP5 (I still don't know what version of MySQL you are running, nor what build of Apache or what Operating System you are using), that may not necessarily be the case.

Also again, please be aware that PHP5 is not officially a supported platform for either PHP-Nuke or phpbb so if you run into problems later, please be aware that because these are "Known Issues" little or no support will be provided as in a situation where the developers aren't supporting it, neither can anyone else realistically.

The reported problems include:

1) Unrecoverable/unrestorable corrupted user base (PHP5/MySQL 4.1)
2) Forum restrictions not working (PHP5/MySQL 4.1)
3) Non-Group members being able to see all posts in restricted "Groups Only" forums (PHP5)
3a) NSN-Groups funcationality lost with PHP5/MySQL 4.1 with forums.
4) Permissions don't work in forums blocks (PHP5)
5) Deprecated globals $HTTP_POST_VARS and $HTTP_GET_VARS don't work (PHP5)

and the list goes on and on.

So again. Be forwarned. Neither application is officially supported in your environment and thus if you have issues, please be aware that since the developers can't fix your problems, neither will we be able to fix your problems.

Just a heads-up.

Steph
