    All Japanese words of title and description display as "?" mark. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    I have the same issue. I guess its because the plugin doesn't use the right font coding. UTF-8 and UTF-16 perhaps will solve these issues. But it has to come from the designer.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention, I'll see what I can find out and have this out with the next quick release which should be very soon.

    I added Kanji UTF support to 1.3.3!

    hi, cpres,

    how did you let your plugin support Kanji UTF?

    It was an issue on the database side. MySQL doesn't default to UTF so you have to force it on setup, for example, here's what I changed my slide title to:

    VARCHAR(150) CHARACTER SET utf8 NOT NULL DEFAULT ''

    refer to "Search with foreign characters (Danish æ ø å) not working"

    What do you mean? Are those Danish characters not working? Do they not fall under UTF?

    Hi, cpres,

    I make mistake. Because I met Japanese Kanji search problem in Link Library plugin, and finally found where the problem happens. I just want to share this finding with others. but I put this message at wrong place.

    sorry to make you feel confused.

    Your plugin is working very.
