Minor issue with the domain mapping plugin (4 posts)

    Greets:

    The SQL code in the domain_mapping.php file uses the server default mysql charset type, not the database charset set within wp-config.php.

    On a new install on a CPanel box, the domain_mapping table got setup as latin1 instead of the selected utf8.

    For reference, I was using the latest 4.1 version of the plugin on a 2.7.1 (r1764) codebase.

    thanks

    Same here. Also Global Tags and OpenID. YARPP sets utf8_unicode instead of utf8_general but it's following the wp-config setting otherwise. Looked into converting collations but I'm not feeling adventurous right at the moment.

    I'm being told elsewhere that wp (and wpmu) developers usually ignore charsets. Have to admit that I don;t see this issue on other platforms as use but it'll just have to be something we manually check during installs. One of these days, we'll do a starting mysql database for our new installs.

    Then they should follow through and take that setting out of wp-config.
