Support » Plugins » Display Japanese in ADMIN?

  • Resolved DH2


    Hello, I want to display Japanese correctly on posts when I am in the admin panel. They display correctly on the site, but when I try to edit them in the admin panel they turn into a bunch of codes. The same thing happens in the site map which I assume takes the post titles from the admin panel.

    Check the category Japanese to see what I mean.

    Please help me out. Thanks!

    DH2: are you using the latest version of WordPress? It should handle the slugs fine.

    Also, you might need to fix your database encoding:



    Hi Nao, it’s the title that has problems, so I don’t think it’s slug related. I am using version 2.9.1.

    I will have a look at the database encoding, thanks for your suggestion.

    A clean and simple solution (Commenting out the following two lines in wp-config.php) has worked for me.

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables.
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
    The Database Collate type. Don’t change this if in doubt.
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”); */

    Thanks misty it worked! yay =)
