Home Forums JavaScript Javascript/jquery messes up special characters Re: Javascript/jquery messes up special characters


I have the meta tags on both the pages. The javascript messes the string up but I managed to solve it like this.

//If user submits the form
var clientmsg = $("#usermsg").val();
var e_clientmsg = escape(clientmsg); //escape the string
$.post("post.php", {text: e_clientmsg});
$("#usermsg").attr("value", "");
return false;

$address = $_SERVER;
$err = array();
$message = urldecode($_POST); // Decode the string
$mem_id = $_COOKIE;
$ip = $address;
$result = mysql_query( "Insert Into chat (user_id, message, ip) Values('$mem_id', '$message', '$ip')",$conn )
or die("Something went wrong while inserting message into database !". mysql_error());

And now all my Icelandic characters shows up fine.

Thanks for your answer though Mottie ;)
