Hi,

It seems that pt_BR language file has incorrect/damaged chars in it, and/or wrong encoding (as it happens in all themes).

Jamie, can we do something about it? Can we finally drop two variants of the language files, and completely remove all non-utf8 encodings?

Do you see this for regular Portuguese as well, or only Brazilian?

Characters are also invalid in Dashboard (picture WebminDashboardPT.png included now)

I changed the language to Portuguese (Brazilian) UTF-8 and my Dashboard looks okay, from what I can tell.

Is this correct?

Make sure that you really have UTF8 set and not overwriting it using Webmin/Change Language and Theme.

If you open browser's console and run: get_server_data('charset'), what is the output that you get?

What browser are you using?

In webmin it is UTF-8 too.

Some parts of page are correct (as the part you copy), but not the marked parts

Chrome console: get_server_data('charset') "UTF-8"

One thing I noticed is that switching to brazilian portuguese works OK, but only if you do a full reload of the page after switching. Otherwise the left menu uses the wrong character set..

By going to Webmin/Webmin Configuration/Language and Locale what do you have set for:

  1. Character set for HTML pages
  2. Use language specified by browser?

Hi,

I changed it to English as you can see in 001inenglishutf8.png Then I changed to Brazilian Portuguese and the menu show the strange characters as in image 002changetoptbrutf8.png Then I logout and login again, it continues to show the strange characters, but the dashboard from virtualmin is correct now, as you can see in 003afterrelogindashboard.png

I found that I had to actually shift-reload the page to clear any caches.

JamieCameron,

I try, full reload, clear cache, three diferent browsers, privacy mode, Windows PC, and Android smart phone, none of this worked, by the way, I try too change from an language to another, this works correctly without any refresh or any full clear cache (but shows the strange characters when set to pt-br.utf8)

@brunno. I can confirm that Jamie's patch fixes issues for UTF-8 charset.

Speaking about navigation menu, only few places has strange � appearing, for example in:

�ndex de Servidores Webmin P�ginas do Manual Parti��es em Discos Locais Configura��o de Arranque do Linux

All the rest looks just fine. If you tell me how to spell the above correctly, I will patch it for you!

Have you any updates about that?

We're still working on switching all languages to UTF-8 , which will solve this once and for all.
