Question UTF-8 Character set issues

My website was hacked before christmas and was cleaned up for me by a security consultancy who were excellent.

However, since then I have issues with the character set in Kunena. Being in the UK my members use the UK currency symbol - the £ symbol - frequently

Every instance of the pound symbol appears as £ which is some sort of utf-8 issue as far as I can see.

I cannot find where this issue is generated from.

PHP5 is set to UTF8

The database collation is utf8-general ci and UTF8

www.bigjimny.com/forum




Kunena is 4.0.9

Within the main Joomla website (blogs etc.) the £ symbol is correct, its just within Kunena.

Any ideas where to look as I have spent hours on this so far

please try this:

1) install admin tools
2) click on "Database Collation"
3) click on "Apply"

then check kunena again. (maybe its only working on new topics, you need to check that)

Thanks, I had already reset the collation.

I have just tried it again through Admin Tools and it has not cured it.

ok, then look on the joomla sysinfo, that default_charset = utf-8


Please add kunena report:
backend - components - kunena - tools - report

I cannot find default charset in the System Info. The only entry is Database Collation utf8_general_ci

you need this on your index.php from your joomla template:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />

If you switch back to the default joomla template you will see it will works again.

Ah, I do not have the default Joomla templates installed as we stripped the system to the bare minimum to ensure all possible hack points for the site were removed.

I only have js_onyx template and the Kunena templates on the site. js_onyx is written in the Wright framework so there is no obvious place for me to edit the index.php

However I note that if I view the source of www.bigjimny.com/forum that it has this in the first few lines.....

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en-GB" dir="ltr">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="keywords" content="test, BigJimny Shop and Website, Suzuki Jimny, BigJimny Forum" />

please upload the joomla template. and try with that one, then you know its not your template.

It can be also a plugin thats causes the issue.
