Summary0001096: report_incidents_by_skills shows ??? for title on pie lang is zh_CN
DescriptionHi Team,

When the user lang profile is zh_CN, the report_incidents_by_skills show ???? on title in the pie chart.
I print the chart.php, and it as following:
"src='chart.php?type=pie&data=34|11|8|3|1|0&legends=McAfee Email Gateway Support (59.6%)|PC Support (19.3%)|McAfee Firewall Support (14.0%)|McAfee Web Gateway Support (5.3%)|ePO support (1.8%)|Others (0.0)&title=%E6%8C%89%E6%8A%80%E8%83%BD' "

and the you can see the attached pic for screenshot.

I have checked the latest svn, and it seemed the code for pie chart does not change:

if (extension_loaded('gd'))
            $data = substr($data, 0, strlen($data)-1);
            $legend = substr($legend, 0, strlen($legend)-1);
            $title = urlencode($strIncidentsBySkill);
            echo "\n

<div style='text-align:center;'>";
            echo "\n<img src='chart.php?type=pie&data={$data}&legends={$legend}&
title={$title}' />";
            echo "\n</div>

The problem with the large pie slice is already fixed in SVN (its in chart.php, we no longer attempt to draw a slice of zero degrees.

As for the title I can confirm this is still an issue with the latest code

GDs internal font only supports ISO 8859-2 ( [^]) so we'd need to ship/support an external font to resolve this one

I can send you the font file with Chinese, but it is about 7M, how could I upload it to you?

Hi Allen Zhao,

If you have a TTF font you can copy this to your sit install directory and rename it FreeSans.ttf then you should get a title on the chart.

We're going to look at a better solution for a subsequent release.

Hi Paul,

I have tried with the new ttf font, but no lucky, and I have uploaded the new pic to this ticket.

Hi Allen,

Appologies the font needs to go in <sit>/lib/ as FreeSans.ttf

Hi Paul,

the FreeSans.ttf was in <sit>/lib, and you may found the English letter's font in second pic is diffirent to the first pic that I uploaded.

Any information you need, please let me know.

Ahh Ok, is this a font which has Chinese characters? If so could you email me a copy to paul [at]

Hi Allen,

Thanks for the font the reason this font doesn't work is its not UTF which GD (the backend image library requires). I've tried using [^] which are UTF and these give Chinese symbols in the graph (sorry unable to confirm if its correct as I don't read Chinese). Unfortunately it would seem that this font isn't GPL ( [^]) so we're not able to use it and depending on your organisation you may not be able to use it.

If anyone knows of a good GPL UTF font that would be great.

Tomse pointed me to [^] which looks very useful.

Thanks that link looks useful, my plan to resolve this is

a) Convert the hardcoded font to a config variable
b) Create fonts plugin which ships a number of GPL (or compatible) fonts and overrides the config variable on login

This way we get around the problem of shipping a large number of fonts in our base install though having them available via a plugin, hopefully I am to ship with fonts for each of the languages we have translations for

6f26753 in my fonts git branch and r6182 are the start of adding this support.

The Chinese font is 17M we could perhaps do with a smaller one if such a thing exists

Still looking for an opensource Japanese font if anyone can help

As of r6190 (3.x) and r6190 (font branch) this is in SVN and as of e72b5681 and 6f26753e its in git

just need to fully test and ensure the merge was successful
