Thanks for your reply.
This is a copy of the charset_normalization in my config file:
; Database storage character set
; Must be set to "Off" if not supported by the database server
database_charset = Off
; Enable character normalization to utf-8 (recommended)
; If disabled, strings will be passed through in their native encoding
; Note that client_charset and database collation must be set
; to "utf-8" for this to work, as characters are stored in utf-8
charset_normalization = Off
I can't attach the file. I also had problems applying the patch to HookRegistry.inc.php
but I downloaded it from here http://pkp.sfu.ca/ojs/doxygen/current/h ... ource.html
and copied it over the original version in the lib/pkp folder.
