    Great help! I just decided to enable RSS feeds and this was the first wall I ran into.

    Thanks.

    Finally found the sucker!

    Admin CP / Languages & Phrases / Language Manager / Edit Settings / HTML Character Set


    The default value on my fresh VB3 install under English was blank. I inserted "ISO-8859-1" as the HTML Character Set value and everything is now running smooth! Oh, yeah!

    i manually edited my "external.php" page and set the encoding to "ISO-8859-1".

    can anyone confirm if and where the "charset" variable is being set?

    Oooohh, good catch! I'll go try that now....

    Having problems with RSS feeds & external.php

    First, please forgive any stupid questions I might ask as I'm entirely new to VB and I'm just setting up my site for the first time.

    OK, my problem is with the external.php call & rss feeds.

    When using the type=js setting it appears to work but when I attempt to use either type=rss or type=rss2 I get the following:
    The XML page cannot be displayed
    Cannot view XML input using style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    System does not support the specified encoding. Error processing resource 'http://www.farpointstation.org/forums/external.php?type=rss&forumids=2'. Line 1, Position 34

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding=""?>
    Any thoughts?
