  1. In Topic: UTF-8 characters partially not working

    Try to re-save the file with a text editor that you know will save as UTF-8, such as Sublime Text. Save again as UTF and upload the file to see if it fixes the issue. Make sure you use binary transfers instead of ASCII when uploading through FTP.



    The binary thing worked. I can't believe it was during the FTP upload. I literally spent 4 hours today trying to fix it.
    Kudos to you, thank you very much for your help!

    Edit: just to clarify, I was using notepad+. I opened the text in Sublime and saved with encoding -> UTF8, seemed to do the trick. I have to copy and paste all russian text though for it to work :S

    I was a nub back 3 years ago, I did not read or check terms and services, all I know is that my cellphone kept buzzing about credit payments, despite having not visited my own website in 4 month...so maybe it was my fault, still keep your eyes peeled :P/>

    Haha okey, thanks for the heads up. All I know is that, after the first year, prices go up quite a bit (First year = cheap to grab customers attention)

    Sorry for hijacking the thread by the way.

    Im currently using Siteground (when registering a new hosting account, before you continue to checkout, you can "leave the page" and get even more discount off. I got a year hosting for about 35 usd, its extremely fast and great for small businesses.
    I used ipage before, and although it's extremely cheap, I didn't find the speed good enough.
    Good luck!

    I had a website on siteground for 19$ a year, however they tried to charge me (on my luckily depleted prepaid credit card) around 40 to 100$ on several occasions for unknown reasons, and their tech support denied it when I asked about why...

    Since then I no longer used them...I dislike hidden fees and working under the table


    Really? That's very interesting. I always set everything to manual renewel and always double check before paying. I've never had any problems with their support either, strange.
  4. In Topic: Can't figure out this URL problem

    Posted 16 Mar 2013

    Hey galtech,
    sorry, that is not what is happening. The pages display correctly, there's nothing wrong with them. The problem I am having that the page still displays when I add another / to a subfolder, for example:
    domain/de/about displays correctly
    but if for some reason you type in:
    domain/de//about, the page still displays the correct file, but images or css code that is in the html like "../" won't display correctly, as it appears that it thinks it's in another subfolder maybe?

    As for the cms, I am not actually using any cms, I made my own simple php mysql function that depending on the language, displays one text or another.
