    (Some english language errors my appear.)

    Folks,

    When I share the posts of my WP blog at Facebook, it gets garbage characters. Like this issue here.

    I've done everything already:

    • changed wp-config lots of times;
    • synchronized wp-config's CHARSET and COLLATION with MySQL database, with UTF-8 and utf8_unicode_ci
    • synchronized wp-config's CHARSET and COLLATION with MySQL database, with UTF-8 and utf8_general_ci
    • put that line $this->query("SET NAMES UTF8");' in wp-db.php
    • converted all my PHP files to UTF-8 without BOM.
    • praying and meditation.

    Nothing happend.

    You can understand my problem here.

    Some genius know what has to be done?

    ps.: my WordPress is hosted at Dreamhost.com

    I solved this problem setting dynamically the open graph tags of facebook.
    If you don't know how to do it this may give you a little help: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/facebook-open-graph-wordpress/
