Unicode: utf-8 Implementation (4 posts)

    In trying to set up phorum and MU wordpress together using utf-8 throughout the entire site and given we've have already set "utf-8" as the charset for all the webpages, we have a problem. (We're running Windows 2003, Apache 2.0.59, PHP4.4.2 and MySQL Server Ver. 4.1.16.)

    While Chinese characters seemingly can be input and displayed normally and are searchable using the search engine that comes with WordPress, however, within PHPMyadmin we find that the characters are not displayed as Chinese characters, just a bungle of codes. Is there anyway we have the characters displayed properly?

    What collation is your WPMU database? Is it utf8_general_ci?

    In phpMyadmin, you need to make sure that you are using UTF8 as default connection. Also, you may need to check your browser and make sure it is using UTF8 decoding for the phpMyadmin page.

    I've been testing my site in a local computer, and didn't notice that until I started to install WPMU 1.1.1 on my webserver the Chinese charactes were corrupt.

    I have created the database as utf8_general_ci collation in PhpMyAdmin. Did I miss anything else?
