Hi..

I just started a forum for our clan and with out a second thought we're using Ravens v 2.5

The new installation went pretty well except for 2 problems.

1 - I had to delete the .htaccess file to preform the installation as I got a 500 Error.
After the installation I put the htacess file back but still got the 500 Error so now there is now htacess file. How can I get around this or is it not necessary to use it.

2- Our community language is Swedish and the problem is in the forum admin section.
I am using CT_RN theme which we love.
When I create a new Forum section using the following characters Ä Ö Å the final result on the board is

Allmänt Snack
Här tar vi upp allt.
Moderator Administratör

When its should read as

Allmänt Snack
Här tar vi upp allt.
Moderator Administratör

When making a post that section the characters are correct.

Appreciate all help, plus is there a language file to covert the complete forum into Swedish or can someone recommend a stable Raven version where I can use Swedish language and the CT_RN Theme.

My host is one.com and if it helps

Software version: 5.1.63-0+squeeze1 - (Debian)
Protocol version: 10
Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)


Thanks in advance Aen

1. Never delete .htaccess otherwise u compromise the secutity of your site.

Open your .htaccess and comment these lines


Code:
# 'Options +FollowSymLinks' is required for use of mod_rewrite.

# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options +FollowSymLinks

# 'Options +Includes' is required for use of Server Side Includes (SSI), such as custom error pages (like 403.shtml).
# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options +Includes

# 'Options -Indexes' is used for controlling directory listings if there is not an index file in a directory (and said directory is readable by the web server).
# A directory index will be automatically generated and this can prove to be a dangerous security issue.
# To disable this feature, use: 'Options -Indexes'
# To enable this feature (not advised), use: 'Options +Indexes'
# Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
#Options -Indexes


let me know if this solve your problem

About the language: I think it will solve in the next version. Be Patient!

Thanks loads unicornio

That helped perfectly !!

Regarding the language and the next version 3, I presume that there isn't any release date yet so it seems that I can't use 2.5.

Any recommendation for a stable version of Raven that I can go over to instead.

Thx Aen

Try to use html code for your special chars, eg ä instead of ä, if you want create a new Forum.

Do you have changed the charset type in the language files or do you have leave the original setting with ISO? You must use the ISO type. UTF-8 as charset for your nuke is in RN25 not really supported. In the database you can use UTF-8 but the best solution is atm is the using of a latin db.

Hi neralex

Thanks for your input, it was greatly appreciated.

I haven't changed anything in the language files, they are as original.

Your tip on using html code for special characters when creating my Forums & sub forums in Forums Admin / Management with Swedish characters is what I will have to use atm until v3 is released and a complete translation to Swedish is made by someone.

Regarding the db it's running Server charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8) and I don't want to change it to latin as the forum is in a sub domain.

Found a link that will provided me with the special characters I will need [ Only registered users can see links on this board! Get registered or login! ]

Once again thanks Loads !

If anyone has more suggestions or comments they are welcome..

Ps. Great forum & Great support Ds.

Thx Aen

aen, version 3.0 will be fully UTF-8 compatible. With anything prior to that, you may experience issues with the security filtering or other slight nuances like what you experienced above.

As long as you do not experience any issues with your DB being UTF-8, I would leave it for now. However, it does mean the RN Team needs to be keep this in mind for our migration/upgrade tools... we could see just about any charsets out there...
