When we try to type in Mongolian fonts smileys replace all fonts. Can there a reason?
Any advice is HIGHLY appreciated.

Forum database was set to UTF-8, but it did not help.
Source code shows the following in place where there should have been fonts:

It's a usual error that appears when the database is in latin1_swedish_ci collation and the language is a UTF-8 one. Characters a stored as exclamation marks and parsed as .

Did you do a proper install in UTF-8 from the beginning? It happens also, if you installed SMF through Fantastico or similar server utility.

As the forum is not yet a working one the easiest way is a clean UTF-8 install with SMF files.

Thank you for answering. Manual install resolved all issues. Fantastico was used previously.

I am glad it helped  ;)

It's a quite common question in Greek support board.

At the head of foreign languages support section or translation section , IT SHOULD BE WRITTEN IN BOLD FANTASTICO WILL ruin your your effort, INSTALL MANUALLY!!!

It will help SMF spread.

This should be included in SMF wiki, documentation, or whatever. I'm  diving again in SMF.

Sorry if I'm resurrecting a dead topic, (judging by the red text I am) I installed via fantastico and want to do a fresh reinstall without it but I dont want to lose the current forum content (my 10 regulars would be quite pissed) I've never dealt with something such as this and am brand new to this forum (as my post count suggests) and am looking for the guidance of an older wiser SMF'er

lief you need an upgrade http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?board=3.0;sort=subject

However some issues of a Fantastico installation will not be cured.

Have a look at a translation from Greek link of a sticky post about Fantastico. Translation is not perfect but it does the job.
