    Hi there,

    Currently all german characters like "ä" "ö" "ü" etc. are ignored and will not be saved within the database after inputted in my form.

    Is there any elegant solution to get this fixed? I am using a form with fields and textarea where these characters would be required for input.

    Many thanks in advance.

    I‘m not having any issues with all kinds of special characters in Fabrik elements.
    But you should be setting your database to an utf-8 encoding. This needs to be done in your database management console and it doesn‘t hurt to change it before creating the Joomla and Fabrik tables.

    With this statement you can check your default character set:
    SELECT default_character_set_name FROM information_schema.SCHEMATA
    WHERE schema_name = "yourdatabase"

    Here you can find an example how to change to utf8.
