- Joomla Chinese UTF-8 version
- SMF English version with Chinese UTF-8 language pack installed

All Chinese text is fine in Joomla, but when you go to the wrapped forum page the Joomla text (menu, footer etc) is broken...


Any thoughts?

Thanks !

Just solved the problem last night. Turns out that even though you wanna use UTF-8 for encoding, you must NOT check the "Use UTF-8" check box when you are installing SMF. I've installed SMF for 6 times before I finally figured out THAT was causing the problem.

Interesting eh? ;)
