WP Super Cache
Super Cache and Unicode character problems (3 posts)

    Very recently—since upgrading to 3.3.1 I think—odd characters have been appearing in the text of my blog. It's always used UTF-8, which is now the inflexible WP standard, so I can't think the problem is from our end. Sadly, disabling WP-Super-Cache makes the problem go away. I've tested it a couple of times and it seems to be the robust solution.

    Does this make sense? That is, could it be that Super Cache caching could affect encoding and/or throw in wrongly coded characters?

    Has anyone else encountered a similar problem?

    I love WP-Super-Cache and really need to be able to use it.

    Check the end of the FAQ. You need to add this to your .htaccess file:

    AddDefaultCharset UTF8

    That was removed in the last version but I think I'll put it back as it fixed more problems than it appears to have caused..

    Many thanks, Donncha. And apologies for not getting to the end of the FAQ.
