    Hello

    I've built a CMS using RadEditor as the HTML editor for page conent, and one of my customers has requested that the site is multi-lingual - these languages being English, Greek, Russian and Arabic... so all different alphabets.

    I've just tried cutting and pasting in some russian copy to the cms, and this rendered fine on-screen, but seems to have been stored in the database as a series of question marks like this :  ???? ???? ??????

    (HTML tags are stored fine)

    This looks to be more of a SQL issue, but I was wondering if anybody had any good pointers?

    Thanks

    Darren

    Hello Darren,

    You should make sure that the content is saved with UTF-8 encoding and that your database column is of ntext or nchar type.

    You can find more information here: http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet/editor/appearanceofoddcharactersaftersavingradeditorscontentindatabase.html

    Thanks very much - just a simple pointer to add to your post - if you're using a middle-tier code generation platform such as LLBL Gen, make sure you re-compile your data access layer :)
