Hi. My board has different forums in different languages and it would be great if I could assign English to the English Forum, leaving other forums as the board's default french.

Does such mod exist or not ? :confused::confused:

Alright. I need your help.

In any SQL dump, you can see the titles of my arabic forums (on my french board) is encoded as
القرآن

which I believe is Arabic encoded in ISO-8859-1, correct me if I am wrong.

But since I installed this great mod, now when I edit the arabic forum name, it is encoded as this:

باللغة العربيّـة الجميلة

I guess this is because Arabic is encoded as windows-1256 ...

So now, the name of this forum only appears in correct arabic when viewing the board in Arabic.

When you view the board in any other language, this forum appears as باللغة العربيّـة الجميلة....

I feel stuck and confused as what to do now.

in instructions .. it is recommended to use this if your forum is UTF-8 ..
if you can convert your database to UTF-8 .. This would be great ..
though .. there may be a workaround .. you can try setting HTML charset of your foreign languages to HTML charset of your main language .. you will have to convert language XML files to this charset before migration .. If you need help with this please send me pm with details .
