I found a Problem within the 1stpagenews addon.
If there are "umlaute" (like in German) in the post it will be not properly displayed
you have to add the following codelines:

Here you add the Umlaute in the array:

$umlaute = array('ä', 'ö', 'ü','Ä','Ö','Ü','ß');
$htmlcode = array('ä', 'ö', 'ü','Ä','Ö','Ü','&szlig');

paste the lines above, under the following line:



after that line:
$topics[$tid]['post_text']=substr(strip_tags(str_replace('<br />', "\n", $res[1])), 0, $maxTxtLength);

you have to paste this:

$topics[$tid]['post_text']=substr(strip_tags(str_replace($umlaute, $htmlcode, $res[1])), 0, $maxTxtLength);

Now it should work!

best regards

Before I move this to the proper thread, could you please repost $htmlcode values separating & and the symbol meaning with space, because miniBB interprets such symbols as the sign in whole.

I also could mention that such symbols could be improperly displayed on the page because your forums and the website pages have different encoding. It must be the same encoding then you have better chances everything to be displayed in order...
