strange problem with russian language
« on: September 08, 2010, 12:56:07 pm »
Hi There

I am having some problems with Virtuemart and language extension.

Joomla! 1.5.18 Stable
Joom!Fish Version V2.0.4
VirtueMart 1.1.4

I translated my site to 3 languages (English, Estonian & Russian). The cart function works fine in all 3 languages. The problem appeared while translating the menu items. Now when I translate menus into russian the lines appear as ???? (question marks). The shop core is working in russian and displaying all the right characters but the menu just appears as question marks.

My php database is set to utf8 general ci and all the other options should be fine aswell.

The most strangest thing is that it works in localhost. I have the identical site (which i copied from localhost to my server) in localhost and the russian translation's there work just fine!

I have searched joomla, joomfish and this forum but all the answers haven't helped me a bit.

I attached a picture to understand what I mean.

Any help is welcome!
