    Hi all,

    I have a problem with ä/ü/ö in the text.

    where and how can I change it in php?

    is that correct??

    <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=utf-8″>

    thanks for help


    I have it from the beginning of the installed theme. Don’t you use the DE version of WordPress?

    If I take a look in my site’s source code with the CORONA theme installed, there is the following code:

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    <html dir="ltr" lang="de-DE">


    <meta charset="UTF-8" />


    Yes utf-8 is installed, but when i write directly in php code maybe to change the english “read more” or “relatet posts”

    i have to use this…








    ok problem is solved, i thought there is another trick


    ok, I’ve missunderstood you.

    Here is a great site for this, to change the PHP code, so that Ä is really Ä:

    Ä is for example


    But you can use the default.po file in folder “lang” and translate this file with POEDIT:

    Works fine for such things like “read more” etc.


    thanks colorit :) works fine


    Gern geschehen :-)



    I see colorit could help you :) Thanks for helping out, colorit!
