I thought so. But I know on vbulletin forum they used to advise to change encoding in .xml files. That's why I was confused.
Yes there is a confusion.. I know for vbulletin china.. there you have to change. some people suggest some hacks that help u use that encoding.. BUT you have to change the core files. They then post on vbulletin.com saying you have to change.. I think I tried all of them.. in my configuration.. they dont really work.
As to those photoframes.. i seen a hack for vbgallery..(i think thats what you meen)..
