Convert ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8

For a clean/fresh install of vB 3.8.11 only.

Take a look at https://forum.vbulletin.com/forum/cu...tf-8-languages.

I am not a coder so use the procedure at your own risk but it works fine on my custom 3.8.11 (and on my previous vB versions).

For the details.

Test the following procedure on a fresh vb3.8.11 install :

1) In your XML language file, replace the two ISO parameters by the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

2) Save in UTF-8 (be sure to save in UTF-8, I used Beyond Compare tool to do it)
3) Import and overwrite your new language XML file in AdminCP
4) Change the HTML Character Set at UTF-8 for the languages and by example set fr-FR as Language Code in the other language if your first language is French
5) In the file includes/class_xml.php, replace the code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

by the following code:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

It works fine on my custom vB 3.8.11 (and my previous vB3.8.x versions).

For the record, I used the UTF-8 to keep the french vBulletin accents in a UTF8 WordPress blog via an old WordPress-vBulletin bridge.
