When I create a PDF invoice the currency symbol (£) displays as £. I have looked around the support forums and can’t find a solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Steve,

I’m finding the same thing on my end when I test it. I’m going to create a ticket to fix this, but I did find what is at the very least a workaround. Here’s what I did:

I opened up the gateways/invoice/function.pdf.php file in the Event Espresso plugin and changed line 6 where it says:

$currency_sign = html_entity_decode( $org_options[ 'currency_symbol' ], ENT_QUOTES, 'UTF-8' );


$currency_sign = html_entity_decode( $org_options[ 'currency_symbol' ], ENT_QUOTES, 'ISO-8859-15' );

Changing the encoding worked on my test site. Can you try that and let us know if that works for you?
