I'm starting a blog where different authors will be writing in different languages (Japanese, French, Portuguese, Chinese, etc.). All I want is for WordPress to display those languages when articles are published.
I do *NOT* want any translation tools! I want to be able to simply type, publish, and display. I also want people to be able to comment in each respective language.
At the moment, any time I type Japanese or French, etc., into a post or page edit form, I can see the characters perfectly well, but as soon as I save the draft or publish it, all I get are question marks (????) or strange characters.
I tried commenting out the following in wp-config.php: define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
which worked, but it totally screwed up my theme's functionality (Catalyst 1.4.1).
I just want to be able to type and display in any language, just like I can do on any free blog at WordPress.com.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
