The issue of non latin language in recent comment widget of pagelines columnizer.

Recommended Posts


The default recent comments in columnizer use substr function to cut the excerpt to 50 words. 

It is fine in latin Language. but will become garbage in the last word of non-latin Language such as Traditional Chinese. 


please consider to make this ok with all Language. 


I have correct this issue but I really don't want to edit this everytime when I upgrade. 


the code I change is in dms/includes/lib.theming.php 


I changed this : 

stripslashes( substr( wp_filter_nohtml_kses( $comment->comment_content ), 0, 50 ) ),

into this:

stripslashes( mb_substr( wp_filter_nohtml_kses( $comment->comment_content ), 0, 50 ,'UTF-8' ) ),

then there is no garbage in the last word. 


please consider correcting this , since not everyone is using latin word.


Thanks .

Hi Kakadong,


I will notify the core team of this and we'll look into it for you.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
