RTL (right to left) web applications aiming for audiences speaking languages like Hebrew or Arabic, are generally more complicated than the same applications aiming for audiences speaking Latin based languages.

The main difference lies of course in the writing direction of these languages, and usually, web applications and several development environments, are capable of solving the directional issue with reasonable results.

Another difficulty in web applications is the encoding issue which affects several issues in a application:
Sure, presenting site's pages in the right encoding is not much of an issue, and the right html declaration will do the trick, but what about the back side of the site - the MySQL database?

Drupal is no different, it was Hebraized by an Israeli team, and it generally functions well.
However, several issues are not well solved or were put aside, small annoying issues, that prevent building a complete Hebrew based Drupal site,
This article will provide possible solutions to 2 of these annoying issues.

We'll start with the installation:
Drupal's installation script is excellent, and it does everything for you, except for the creation of the MySQL database of the server. Prior to the installation process.
You need to generate a new database which will be filled with content by Drupal automatically.

This article is for those that are having major problems with users upload files such as pictures to their profile. The solution is simple and has to do with correcting the directory paths. With some experimenting and testing i got it fixed.

Note: This is for Drupal 6.13.

Step 1: Go to Administer > Site configuration >  File System
Step 2: In the Temporary directory section of the page change it to a file location in drupal such as "sites/default/files/tmp". I usually change it to the corresponding directory the File system path has to avoid file location problems.

Therefore if the File system path is: sites/default/files then i change  the Temporary directory to sites/default/files/tmp.

tmp is the folder i created with the directory for which i would like tempoary files to go to. You can name it to any other suitable name if you wish other than tmp.

Step 3: Click Save Configuration.

Now for the easy path.

Step 4:  Go to Administer : User management > User settings.

Step 5:  Look for the section heading "Pictures". Under picture support select the radio button "Enabled". Some other fields should now appear.

Step 6: Under the heading "Picture image path:" input into the field sites/default/files/pictures. Make sure and create a folder named "pictures" in the directory or you'll get an error saying that it does not exist.

Step 7. Click Save Configuration and your done.

Step 8: Enjoy.

Important NOTE:

Make sure the upload module is …
