I am new in Drupal theming and I would like to control the "submitted by" part of a node. I want to remove the name of the author and stylize the created_date of the node. The problem is that I also echo some greek characters that show up in weird symbols in my site. I tried changing the encoding to utf-8 but it won't work. I am not even sure what the original encoding of node.tpl.php is. How would I go inserting my own custom text inside node.tpl.php and printing it correctly?
<?php if ($display_submitted): ?> <footer class="submitted"><?php $posted="Δημοσιεύτηκε στις "; echo mb_convert_encoding($posted, "UTF-8", "Windows-1252") . date( "d F, Y",$node->created); ?></footer> <?php endif; ?>
The code above returns:
Äçìïóéåýôçêå óôéò 12 January, 2012
I also tried utf8_encode function but that was a long shot since it converts ISO-8859-1 strings to UTF-8.
