Problem with greek characters
I have a problem when setting custom fields values in greek language.

If I do that, the filter doesn't work. It just comes up empty (no threads found) every time you select a value from the dropdown list. If I change the values back to english, filter gives results.

I think some problem with characters has been reported in the past and a solution has been posted here:

but I can see in my template that this change is now included in the default package, so what else might be the cause for this?

What collation do you have on the gars_custom_values table? Does it match with the ISO-8859-7 charset you are using for the forum? It should probably be greek_general_ci and if it is not, use phpMyAdmin to change it and see if that helps.

I have greek_general_ci in the collation option and iso-8859-7 in the character set.

Anyway, don't bother with this as I will use the default VB forumdisplay template for my gars forums, so I will not be needing the gars filter option.

I'm bringing this back up, since I need to use the filter option and I simply can't because of the problem with greek characters. Any ideas what I can do to solve this?
