email_admin_userregister.txt language issue - wrong utf-8 chars in the email

I've got this problem with my Czech version of "email_admin_userregister_cze.txt". When I get an e-mail it contains wrong characters. For example, not "Přejeme pěkný den" but something instead of special chars.

How do I fix that? Saving the txt file with UTF-8 coding did not help. It is quite important since I am getting people's names and addresses and I can't decrypt them.

Try to paste this in setup_options.php:

That helped and the Czech characters are now displayed correctly :-) Thank you very much.

In miniBB version 2 was solution to change a bit function convEnt() in bb_func_pthread.php by adding php function iconv(). (For my big surprise is final working enconding windows-1250 instead iso-8859-2.)

function convEnt($str){
return iconv( 'utf-8', 'windows-1250' , strip_tags(str_replace(array('<br />', ''', '&quot;', '&amp;', '$', '&lt;', '&gt;'), array("\r\n", "'", '"', '&', '$', '<', '>'), $str)));

I'm not truly sure what you're about... miniBB version 2 is abandoned years ago. Now we have version 3.x and the newest release should come soon. Also, the function you mention, is now located in bb_func_txt.php, not bb_func_pthread.php.

Actually, I don't understand why it would be needed to put the stuff like you propose. Default forum encoding is typically changed in the language pack (lang/eng.php or whatever language pack you may have --> $l_meta var).

Email templates encoding could be set like I've explained above.
