Hi all,

I am a BlogEngine user. My site address is http://alibabaoglan.com

My question is, i want to use Turkish characters in my blog like "ş" and "ç" but i can't use them.
 
I try to change the line 58 in web.config, like <globalization requestEncoding="ISO-8859-9" responseEncoding="ISO-8859-9" culture="auto" uiCulture="auto"/> but i still see this characters like "?" and now i change all ş like s in menu bars

How can i fix it?

Thanks for your help.

As far as I know, UTF covers Turkish characters (as well as Czech characters and many others).

Use default <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" culture="auto" uiCulture="auto"/>.

I have changed the following in my BlogEngine.NET webproject:

admin\admin1.master
==============
a) line 10, include
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
b) save as  UTF-8 file
c) check it twice - open in a binary view, it should start with values "", hexa EF BB BF

editors\tiny_mce\tiny_mce.js
===================
a) replace this._def("entity_encoding","named");
with
this._def("entity_encoding","raw");

App_GlobalResources\labels.cs.resx - you will probably use Turkish localization file
=========================
a) save as  UTF-8 file
b) check it twice - open in a binary view, it should start with values "", hexa EF BB BF

Hope this helps.
