Sort userlist with scandinavian characters

9 years 4 months ago #137640 by weting
I have an issue when trying to sort my userlists by name. Some names will start with a scandinavian character (i e Öman). In CB this name will end up in the list as if it startet with O. But in Ö is actually in the end of our alphabet. How can I change this?

Don't think there's a resolution to this. The sorting is done on a database level and controlled by your database as it's just adding SORT BY to the query. That character according to MYSQL is equivalent to a O. You may want to contact your host on how to adjust your database to better fit your nationality, but don't think there's much they can do.
