there is problem between showing the arabic language and meaningless symbols. examples:-
1-the first problem:- from the main page in english language u cant view to the topic which is in arabic language directly , c the image:-
and if u press on the topic (which is not arabic language) sure the symbols going to show up c:-
2- the second problem:- if i want to share the topic link, it wont work it will give the same result as this image http://i.imgur.com/jBkrfaF.png
for example:- Whonix Forum
the only way to view the topics is:- pressing arabic on the top of the main page and then view the arabic topics or giving the link of the general arabic language which is this one:- Whonix Forum
but giving the exact topic link or viewing the link from outside it wont be readable.
hope u fix that as u soon as u can. thnx
as someone who fundamental believes that a project like this, should be accessible to as many people as possible, I can absolutely see why this could bring some problems with it. Thus, I’ve experimented a bit and found a somewhat “contemporary” solution for problem number two. By adding
at the end of a link you would like to share, the page seems to build in the correct manner. You may see it for example by using the following link: [url=https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,1344.0.html?language=arabic]Whonix Forum and comparing it to the output you get when surfing to the page without the “language tag at the end of the link”, like here: [url=https://www.whonix.org/forum/index.php/topic,1344.0.html]Whonix Forum. As someone however, who doesn’t speak the Arabic language, I can’t really tell, whether the output is correct or not, however, it seems to show the page in a proper manner.
Hope this is helping in some way,
i think this is called temporarily solution plus u didnt solve number 1 problem. tho appreciate ur suggestion but also i cant tell everyone to do this in order to share the arabic section. thnx
Maybe (or rather certainly) there is someone else one here, who knows a way to solve this,
good day to u 2
yeah i hope i can c someone who can help. very thankful for ur time. gracious
The problem in the coding HTML
UTF-8 - Character encoding for Unicode
fortasse or Ego or anyone which he can make a comment on the suggested solution ? working or not?
We cannot apply this solution, because we have no manpower to hack smfforum.
