Issue with german umlauts with P2-theme in BuddyPress

    Hello!

    I have Buddypress 1.0.3 (German) running in WordPress MU 2.8.2 (German) and use the cool P2-Theme (Prologue, german language file), which permits frontend editing and resemblesTwitter. However I experience the problem that with the frontend editing in posts and comments existing umlauts get distorted when the editor field is loaded and opened: Ex.: ä becomes ä, ü becomes à ¼, ö becomes ö and ß becomes ß…

    This remains when the edited text ist saved again. I can however enter and store new umlauts in the editor correctly – the issue concerns in each case only the umlauts transferred from the stored text to the editor. Under WordPress 2.8.3 the P2-theme on the same server runs without any problems. Both installations run under UTF-8 encoding. I don’t know what to check or do?!? Does anyone have any idea how this could be fixed? Thanks a lot in advance!

  • Try removing or disabling BuddyPress. Does this problem still occur on WordPress MU?

    I deactivated the BP-plugin. Problem remains. So it’s probably an issue with WordPress MU and the P2-theme?!

    Doing more research I found the following thread in the wp-forum:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/273413?replies=2:

    —-

    Mippe: P2 brokes äÄ öÖ åÅ letters when editing. That pretty much sums it all up.

    noel (Administrator): We’re aware of the issue and will fixing this in the next release.


    But I am still unsure: This problem then occurs only with WordPress MU?

    You have said that the problem occurs on WPMU, and that it does not occur on regular WP. You have also said this problem is not caused by BuddyPress.

    I haven’t got an install of regular WP to test this on, so I am going to assume it is either a WPMU issue *or* you are using an old version of the P2 theme.

    HELP! Since I tried to reactivate the BP plugin I receive a HTTP 500 error when I try to reach the site… mpf!

    I deactivated all plugins via phpmyadmin – in the sitemeta-table as well as in the options-table of the single blogs (there are 3 in my installation right now).

    So the HTTP-500-Error disappeared. And all of a sudden the P2-theme worked properly as well.

    This means: the regular deactivation via backend of the buddypress-plugin didn#t really work. The umlaut-issue with P2-theme seems related to buddypress.

    I deactivated the BP-plugin. Problem remains. So it’s probably an issue with WordPress MU and the P2-theme?!

    The thing is: I only thought I had deactivated the bp-plugin completely (via backend).

    I guess it was removed from the active_sitewide_plugins-field in the sitemeta-table in the database – but it was not removed from the wpmu_sitewide_plugins-field in the same table.

    So the site still worked (no HTTP-500-error), and the umlaut-issue with the p2-theme remained.

    When I then removed the bp-plugin-entry via phpmyadmin from both fields, the “main blog” didn’t appear anymore (error 500), but the two “sub blogs” I have still functioned. And the one sub blog with the P2-theme worked then without the umlaut-issue.

    I hope this clears things up a bit.

    So for me it is pretty clear that the bp-plugin somehow interferes with the P2-editor and causes the umlaut-issue.
