My templates usually ares saved as UTF-8 (without BOM!).
This was working fine together with lucee; my german “umlauts” (ä for example) showed up fine on pages. When I switch the engine to acf2021, the special characters are messed up (my firstname “Jürg” is shown as “JÃ¼rg”. It does work when I place a on every template. Working together with ColdBox; I’ve tried to implement the statement on top of the layout page - no success. I actually don’t want to put that in every template… I’ve found somewhere, that ColdFusion tries to determine the charset of the templates itself. Unfortunately; without BOM I think cf cannot determine the right charset.
Next, I’ve tried to put
into server.json. Also… no success.
In the Lucee admin, under Settings/Charset, there are settings to change the charsets for templates, Web and Resource. If I put “UTF-8” in “Web charset”; it works - for Lucee. Unfortunately I cannot find anything like that in the acf-admin.
Any ideas how I can get around that template charset stuff?
