Sitemap Generator Language Problems
« on: January 03, 2011, 11:22:15 AM »
I just bought A1 sitemap generator. My question is how I can get decent results for my website (Language: german).
Currently the results look like this: Brennstoffe für Heizungen in einer Übersicht. Alles zu Gas, Heizöl,

What do I have to change in order to get a decent image sitemap?

Thx for your help
Joerg

Are you using newest version of A1 Sitemap Generator?

Using version 3.0.4 / 3.0.5 there should be no problems handling *whatever* language website no matter what.
So in conclusion, if there is a problem, I will prioritize and fix ASAP :) What's your website URL? (feel free to mention here, PM or email)
If you have an earlier version of 3.x, simply download and install newest version.


Concerning image sitemaps, please see this tutorial:

If you see anything you believe is wrong, please let me know website address and example! (feel free to mention here, PM or email)

Just for benefit of the forum. Solution was found and solution already in latest public A1 Sitemap Generator version.

Here is what happens when A1 Sitemap Generator tries to determine charset / encoding in  a document (which is vital when interpreting the content returned by server)


step 1)
A1SG checks for charset in (if any) content-type HTTP header

step 2)
A1SG checks if content has a UTF leading BOM

step 3)
A1SG checks mimetype is e.g. text/html.
If text/html the default charset  becomes iso-8859-1
UTF-8 is selected as default for anything XML

step 4)
The final step for A1 Sitemap Generator in determining
what character system is used if above gives no definitive
answer (notice that step 3 is more of a fallback)

A1 Sitemap Generator looked for
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
and close variants. (i.e. reads the charset value to determine how content is
parsed.)

However, the website in question used a HTML5 instruction:
<meta charset="utf-8">

and A1 Sitemap Generator therefore missed it.
But this issue has been fixed some days ago :)
