    I use your plugin for years, it’s very good.
    However I always get a problem with Polish letters
    ąźśĄŹŚ in the file names – they don’t appear correctly.

    The other Polish letters work fine.

    Can you please help me? I checked every possible setting with iconv coding, UTF-8 etc.

    @solmedia. Thanks for posting, and thanks for being a solid customer for so many years. I appreciate the support.

    With Easy Folder Listing Pro, the filenames are not stored in a database, they are taken directly from the file system. As such, the key to get the files to display correctly is actually the charset encoding that is set when you upload the files to your server using your FTP client. If the charset encoding of the file system or the encoding used by the FTP client is not UTF-8 then you will get artifacts like that.

    I would try to re-upload the files with the charset encoding of my FTP client specifically set to UTF-8. Try that and see if it works. I do have features to tweak the charset encoding in the “Options” for the component that you could try. You can access it from the “Options” button on the top right hand side of the Dashboard or Profile Manager.

    Hello,

    Please look at: http://solmedia.pl/wp-content/uploads/server-easyfolder.png (screenshot from Filezilla)
    The filename is OK on server. How can I display it correctly with Easyfolder?

    Thanks

    @solmedia. Thanks for following up.

    It is not really about how it is displayed on the server. It will always display well on the server. It is about the character encoding in the server.

    Ok, let’s try this. Either send me a link to the webpage with the listing, or send me a zip file with the actual files. I will try to display it on my demo server and see how it shows. Then we can compare what our results are and figure out how to sort it out. Just send me an email to support[at]valorapps[dot]com.

    @solmedia. I uploaded the file you sent me to my online demo server: http://www.demos.michaelgilkes.com/joomla/index.php/easy-folder-listing-pro-demo

    Does it show properly? I did not change any settings. I just uploaded it. Is there a link or screenshot of how it is showing up on your server?
