    Hello .. I'm using the latest version of WordPress, when I try to write in Arabic any post it turns into " ?????? " question marks like this ..
    I've googled the subject and I found out about the character encoding in both the DB and WP .. set both of them to the correct value, in DB = utf8-general-ci and in WP UTF-8 .. and I thought the problem should be resolved but no it's still not , so if anyone can help ..

    If you want Arabic why not use the Arabic version?
    Someone has already done the work for you. The English/General release is set to filter the arabic characters (look at your wp-includes/formatting.php) so you would have much, much to do to fully integrate Arabic.

    I don't like the dashboard in arabic .. I just want to write in arabic - sometimes - anyway the dilemma is that I have wordpress on my localhost , and I can't write arabic perfectly , but online it is not , although it is the same version ..

    I think that is beyond what can be answered in this forum or I have time for. It also may develop new issues.
    TO start with you need to allow All characters (as I mentioned the formatting.php) which santizes input and fields. But I think you will need to do more than that to make it fully usable.
