Weird characters in 3.4.1 ??! (3 posts)

    Hi. Ever since I upgraded by blogs, I'm seeing a problem with weird characters coming up when I save posts.

    Some googling suggested this may be related to character set. But I've always used UTF8, everywhere. All my databases are UTF8 and the collation is UTF8_unicode_ci.

    In the wp_config file, I used to have "DB_COLLATE" and "DB_CHARSET" set, but since the last many versions these have been commented out, as suggested by WordPress.

    Now suddenly this weird character problem.

    What gives? How can I fix this? I'm spending days just fixing unpredictable text in my text!

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    try to change the DB_COLLATE and DB_CHARSET settings to enable by deleting the comment mark. can you share your site address?
    Regards

    Thanks jnhgy. The website is pade summit dot org (remove the spaces and replace dot with a .)

    What should the exact code be? Is this correct?--

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', 'utf8_unicode_ci');

    I have tried this, and this did NOT solve the issue. Also, doesn't WordPress recommend leaving them commented out? Thanks!
