WP-data exported stops at umlauts! (2 posts)

    Hi!

    I like to show my clients various CMS so that they can choose wich one they like best. Usually, I start with WP and then go on with other CMS.

    The last time I did this, a client wanted to see all his entries already imported into the CMS, so we worked on it. When we used Textpattern to import the entries from WP into Textpattern, something strange happened: Every TXP-article stopped at where there would be an umlaut (ä, ü, ö and so on) and a next article has been created.

    I have already asked in the TXP-Forums and they are working on it, but I would like to know, whether something changed in WP's database-structure or why this strange error happens.

    I can repeat this error all the time...

    I'm having a similar issue wih umlauts, and also some other special characters (like the TM trademark symbol). I think it has to do with the wp_insert_post() post function and escaping the data. I think editing the import script to use utf8_encode() to encode the post_content should allow the import to succeed, though the actual characters are still often messed up.

    If anyone knows a true solution I'd love to hear it.
