Hey everyone, I have the following problem: I am writing a German Wiki and therefore use umlauts (ä,ö,ü…) quite often in my writing. When I am not using the browser for editing the wiki (or writing comments) everything is fine. Since I want other poeple to be able to post comments or use the discussion pages I need to get the encoding to work. Here is what is happening when I'm trying to edit a discussion page:

  • Writing the comment:
  • Checking the comment via the "preview":
  • Pressing "cancel" since umlauts don't work:

As I said, when I'm not posting from the browser everything works fine. Here's what I've checked/done to prevent the encoding error:

  • I put "export LANG=de_DE.UTF-8" and "export LANGUAGE=de_DE.UTF-8" in my .bashrc
  • I set "locale:" to "de_DE.UTF-8" in my ikiwiki .setup-File

What else could there be wrong? What else could I try to solve the problem?

Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks in advance!
