A UTF-8 problem, not sure if it is in the database or the plugin

  • Hello all,

    My website has some Chinese characters. The SQL database is utf-8 friendly. I have no character encoding problems until today after I installed this plugin called Now Reading Redux for book reviews bloggers. The plugin provides a easy layout of book thumbnails and with a click for writing book reviews. However, in the box for book review writing, when I typed in Chinese characters and published it, all the characters become question marks.

    Is this a problem of the plugin or my SQL database? I double checked my database and my SQL seems to be utf-8 ready. How can I make my plugin recognize Chinese characters then?

    Thanks so much!

    Don
