View Full Version : Problem with language

03-17-2012, 04:34 AM
I've install osCmax on my host and I'm now online. I have a problem with my language charset only in a mailling.
I use Turkish language. On website or administrator site have not problem with language. My problem is only in e-mail.

If customer create a new account then recieve an e-mail but the Turkish characters (only this Ş,İ,Ğ,ş,ı,ğ) shown unknown characters.
What must I do to correct this problem?

Today I have fix my osCmax 2.5.0 to 2.5.0-PL1 and transleted to Turkish.

define('CT_SHOW_TAX_RATE_NEAR_PRICE', 'Display tax rate near price?');
define('CD_SHOW_TAX_RATE_NEAR_PRICE', 'Some countries require you to show the tax rate included near where the price is displayed.');
define('CT_SHOW_SHIPPING_NEAR_PRICE', 'Display link to shipping charges near the price?');
define('CD_SHOW_SHIPPING_NEAR_PRICE', 'Some countries require you to display a link to your shipping charges near the price. Requires <b>Display tax rate near price</b> to be enabled.');

Really this is required of my country.
But I can't see this lines on my configuration oy my store. Why?

And newsletter dosen't work together.

Hi ukkoc!

"Display tax rate near price" is disabled by default and has to be switched on in admin panel. The settings should be found in Configuration/General Settings/My Store.

Please note that "Display tax rate..." works without "Display link..." but not the other way round.

You can not see it as it is a new function I wrote which will be released in v2.5.1 due at the end of this month.

Once you have this new version the admin setting will be available for use in Admin -> Configuration -> My Store

Do you read your emails in another program? (I read mine in Outlook). You may need to download a language pack for your email thru them

You could try replacing the unknown characters with their HTML entities.

i m writing from Greece. We already have an e shop with oscommerce 2.2 .
And now, just because the version is old we would like to use oscommerce max 2.5 which seems to us an excellent job.
For 30 days now. we tried everything to install the greek characters but we have made it till the checkout process.
From that point unfortunately the greek characters do not appear and instead of them some unknown characters appear.
We already have tried GR ISO 8859-7 and UTF 8 .We are most interested at UTF 8.
If there is something that you could advise us you are kindly requested to do so.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried Admin -> Configuration -> Email Options -> Use MIME HTML when sending mails -> true
