Encoding issue in Encyclopedia of Life importer

Post by thilas » Sat Sep 07, 2019 19:19

When searching for a species in Encyclopedia of Life from Diving Log, it seems that there are encoding issues with special characters (e.g. accents in French). More specifically, it seems to be an UTF-8 encoding issue. For instance, "murène commune" instead of "murène commune". I noticed this issue in several (all?) fields in the form.

Hi

Can you give me an example search phrase so I can reproduce this issue? There were some big server side changes on EOL last year which caused a lot of problems with their descriptions and common names, so I want to check if this is a server side problem or importing problem. Normally I do already some encoding fixes.

Kind regards,
Sven
