Re: Problems with umlauts
If you enter umlaut chars in the content of a forum post from bp and they are displayed correctly in bbpress then the problem isn’t the ‘encoding’ filter. It’s the ‘decoding’ filter which has an extra step in it.
On the decoding site in bp when the content comes back from bbpress we also call another filter inside the decode filter. This one is called: wp_filter_kses() and it gets called from the bp filter bp_forums_filter_decode() in bp-forums-filters.php.
If commenting out the line in my previous message doesn’t solve the problem then uncomment the line in the above message and try commenting out line 53 which reads
$content = stripslashes( wp_filter_kses( $content ) );.
