There seems to be a problem with the text-encoding since the move to this site, we are working to fix this hopefully   :o

I seen agridoc post something about this a few times. Last I remember reading he made a few suggestions. I just haven't had time to look at how to fix it.

It seems that tinyportal.co.uk is in ISO-8859-1 codepage, foreign chars don't appear correctly.
I believe database is in unicode.general.ci collation, foreign chars appear correctly when changing codepage.

A Greek test

Δοκιμή ελληνικών.

If you see the page source Greek chars are saved as entities.

bbturk you will see the old messages appear correctly if you switch the browser to UTF-8. New messages appear correctly in Turkish but they are saved as entities, because tinyportal.co.uk is currently set as ISO-8859-1.

Bloc, at some point, had converted tp,net to UTF-8, some no Enlish language and special  chars were not correctly converted but, after switching to UTF-8, it was OK.

Please have a little bit patience, it will be fixed.

Oh, you need to upload the 'new' gif somewhere too...

It needs to be here :

Baran,

As you might have read above, Les has now fixed this issue.  All of the old Turkish  topics and posts from TP.net should now be showing up correctly.  The unfortunate side effect of this is that posts made here in the last 20 days or so (since we started this site) will not show up correctly.  That includes your original post in this topic.  In other words, your OP in this topic now has no content. 

However, any posts made from this point on, should now show up correctly ...
