Hello,

I tried to upload a CSV file with events.
Everything works almost, as it should (thanks for that :-) )
BUT
some of the concerts hat Danish Umlaut (æ ø å) in them, and that had two undesireable consequences:
a) these letter got messet up in SimpleCalendear
and
b) events with these messed up letters could not be deleted. I needed to rename the venues and titles, and then I could delete them.
and
c) all events were categorized ROOT, event though I had selected a different category.

See example screenshot.

What is the cause - or more important, is there a fix / workaround?
All the best,
Jan

Hello again,

I have found a fix for a) and b). Copying the original table to Excel and savng a CSV file from there did the trick.
Probably somthing with the encoding of the csv.

And somehow that also fixed the category thing - even I don't see how this two things are related.

So - case closed, everything fine.
Sorry to bother!
