[FIX] Signature for Names with Special Characters

Postby DaarianneDarkmoon » Mon Aug 14, 2006 3:43 pm

We all know the troubles with special Characters in Names. Wether its Rübezahl, Nânù or similar weird stuff.

They just don't show up if you want to use them as signatur/avatar.
Yes, you have checked the save-folder of siggen and they are there. But the browser just does not recognize all the crapy special signs...

Well, here is a solution, to how you can make them show:

First of all go into the roster and click one of those names that trouble you.
Now look into the adress-line. Between name= and &server you will see a very strange collection of symbols... well, this is how the browser is translating the name.

Lets take the Name "Nàthariél" this will show up as: name=N%C3%A0thari%C3%A9l&server.

The path to the sigantur would normally be:
Code: Select all
http://www.yourdomain.com/roster/addons/siggen/saved/sig-Nàthariél.jpg

which, as we know, won't work.

If you want to show the stored image you just copy N%C3%A0thari%C3%A9l and replace the original name with it.
Code: Select all
http://www.yourdomain.com/roster/addons/siggen/saved/sig-N%C3%A0thari%C3%A9l.jpg

like so...

And now the picture will show perfectly...

Same works for avatars of course.

Hope that helps. Have fun!
