My database contains entries with first letters Ö, Ä and Å but these entries are sorted under O and A. How can I add these three letters to the alphabet?
Also, how can I change the order of how the address is showing – I’d like the zip code to be displayed before the city.

Honestly, I’m not certain. Connections just pulls the data out of the database, it even orders them. I’m not doing anything that is language specific. Best I can do is log this as a bug for now and try to fix it. Can you write out the full alphabet in the order they should be … that way I have something to compare results to.
The address format can be changed if you have purchase one of the commercial templates. See this doc page on how to accomplish this.
I hope this helps!05/02/2014 at 4:04 pm #290107KarinGuest

For my edification, what language is this alphabet?05/03/2014 at 9:23 am #290180
Ok, this is Swedish, yes? To fix this you’ll have to edit the database tables for Connections, maybe even all the tables in the WordPress installation. This explains what needs to be done:

Yes true, it’s swedish!
Where should I change the utf to utf8_swedish_ci? In which file?05/04/2014 at 3:13 pm #290254
AS explained in the link I gave, this must be done in database as this is not a Connections bug. If your webhost has a control panel that you have access to, usually one of the tools they provide is phpMyAdmin. After a quick search, I found this how to link:
If you not familiar with this tool, I recommend contacting your host support and asking them to change the collation default to utf8_swedish_ci and also have them change any tables not using this collation.
Hope that helps.
