ezcsvimport does not support special chars

Friday 28 December 2012 9:54:52 am - 2 replies

Good morning

I have a long csv files with about 500 lines. I have to import it into my EzPublish tree (class name is Person).

Unfortunately there are several special chars (like accents and single quotes) into my csv lines, and the ezcsvimport.php script seems not happy about that!

Any suggestions?

I read about data_import extension but I really did not understand if that should be a solution to my problem and how to use it.

Hi Simone,

You should check the encoding of the csv file, which has to be UTF-8.

Best regards,

I believe it's not an encoding issue... simply it does not like accented letters.
