    I have so many problems whit the characters after import all comments.

    Example, the original string is:

    64mil millones de dólares.

    after importing appears this:

    64mil millones de d贸lares.

    In language configuration y have "Spanish (Spain)".

    Same/similar problem here. I haven't really dug into the issue a whole lot but it looks like it might have to do with newlines for us - we aren't seeing any new paragraphs in the imported comments where there used to be. All comments are UTF-8 too, so it shouldn't be a character set issue on our end.

    Yes, same problem here too. Spanish accented characters are shown wrong (á, é, í, ó, ú, ñ)). For example 'técnico' becomes 'tĂŠcnico' or 'algún' becomes 'algĂşn'...

    My blog and also the comments table in the DB are set to UTF-8.

    Just as heryemmanuel, in configuration options I have set Disqus to "Spanish (Spain)" language.

    Any solution yet? Thanks in advance.

    Okay, I contacted the support and they answered me this:

    Disqus currently only supports commenting in UTF-8 format. To keep this from happening in the future, we would recommend that all comments be imported into UTF-8 format.

    The funny thing is that everything on my blog is set to UTF-8 (template, database tables...), still when I import the comments into Disqus all accented characters are shown wrongly. :(

    Hi jmaraujo,

    What was your case # in our support system? I'd like to take a look into it to see if there may have been a misunderstanding of the issue on our part.

    Thanks,
    Tyler

    Thanks, Tyler. Case is #76605. The support reply was made by Talton.

    I imported all the comments once again, and the problem persist. Tested with Opera, Firefox, Chrome and IE8 (except IE, all other browsers are updated to their latest version).

    The curious thing is that when I check the page's source code, all accents are there, but on the browser windows they are wrong. So, maybe is a parsing problem? (I'm just guessing here ;) )

    This is a bug on our end and we're looking into it. It's looking like it will take a bit longer to fix due to the nature of this type of issue's complexity but rest assured you're not alone and this is a priority for us.

    Sorry about the initial confusion on our end. Don't hesitate to reach out to us at http://disqus.com/support with any further questions.

    Tyler,

    I also have the same problem with a Portuguese BR blog, and was not able to start using Disqus Comment System due to the initial comment upload changing characters to unknown letters and symbols.

    Please let us know if is there an ETA for this issue to be sorted, or in case that is not available or can't be disclosed, whenever a release sorting it is published.

    Best regards,

    Tieteense.
