Very strange encoding problem (7 posts)

    Although the general coding is right (é and others displaying in the menu, title, ...), the texts of the posts do not display any special character. It is under iso-8859-1, yet. If I turn to Utf-8, it is worse.
    Not that it displays something strange instead: it displays nothing... like: "Voil, malgr tout," instead of "Voilà, malgré tout,". But the letters ARE in the database, I double checked that.
    So it is a matter of how posts are fetched - displayed, but I can not seem to pinpoint were it happens, and, even stranger, it happens in my online blog, but not on my developpement server O_o
    Any idea ??

    This may be worth a try.
    Add this to your .htaccess file:
    AddDefaultCharset utf-8
    or
    AddDefaultCharset iso-8859-1
    Choose the one that matches your chosen wp encoding.

    Done, already, does not change anything. If you look carefully, it is just like the post + comments output where going through a function that suppresses all accentued + ç + ... characters. In my selfmade *last comments* function, it does not...
    But, thank you for trying :-)

    Doesn't work for me. I have a similar problem. Only one plugin activated (wppaginate), automatic xhtml-correction off, .htaccess-file yes or no, but still my posts that were written in UTF-8 show up terrible, éven when using UTF-8 through Firefox.
    Everything is OK again when turning to iso-8859-1, but the posts were NOT written that way I'm sure... :(

    I will go and try to disable the plugin soon, but what do you mean with that the database also has a default coding? Where in the database can I find this? Because in the optionstable in the database, the value follows the value/method I choose from the optionsmenu in the administrationarea.

    Well, if you do use a tool like PHPMyadmin to access your DB (as I do, I have much more than only my blog on it), I noticed that already twice it caused problems of encoding.... so...
