Summary04289: German Umlauts are not correct coded in public Statistik
DescriptionGerman Umlauts like "ö, ü, ä" are not correct coded in the public statistik. For Example: An "ü" looks like that: ü
Additional Information1. php5 runs on server throgh a modified ".htaccas" file (code: addHandler x-httpd-php5. php.). The base version of php on server is 4.4.9-0.dotdeb.1

2. The same problem was already reported unter "03407 - umlauts in public statistic". Using the fixed file introduced there shows no result.

3. The problem does not appear by using the same LimeSurvey version unter XAMPP

4. Sorry for my english

I could reproduce the problem at the latest SVN version (see attached screen shot).

I also get the following error several times when calling the public statistics: "Deprecated: Function split() is deprecated in C:\xampp\htdocs\limeSOURCE\limesurvey\classes\pchart\pchart\pChart.class on line 289"
-> Using PHP 5.3.1

i´ve just learned something, what could perhaps help to fix the problem with the german umlauts. Limesurvey uses (as far as I know) basically the "UTF 8" code, but in the public statistik the signs are encoded instead of "UTF-8" with "ISO-8859-1".

If I change the code in my browser to "UTF-8", the signs are correctly encoded.

sincerely yours

I still run into umlaut problems when using the attached "Public statistics test" survey (ID 11892).

Mazi, yours is a different error which I can't reproduce any way. Please issue a new bug report or try to find out what is causing it.

Carsten, a user solved a similar problem, see

Can you check if this is a solution we can integrate? If not possible, simply close the ticket again.

The solution described does make no real sense to me. I don't think it is worth to followup, especially if it works on the demo version.
