Hey guys,

I've recently started working with OpenCart and I'm really impressed. The only big problem I'm having is regarding the localization in Greek. I started translating a few text strings in a new theme and run into problems.

First of all, Greek characters work great in most modules except for the left and right columns where they show up as blocks (unrecognizable characters) although I'm using UTF-8 encoding and all other text strings show up fine.

Second and probably the biggest problem, the search won't recognize any Greek language input. I've added a few sample products with descriptions and titles in Greek. They show up fine when you browse them but searching for any of them returns nothing, as if they don't exist...

What could be the problem?

What is the character set and collation of your database and of the individual tables?

You'll probably be wanting to use UTF-8 General.

Thanks for the reply.

The database collation is utf8_general and the tables are utf8_bin.
