[Resolved] Foreign character set goes awry / text widgets disappear with 2.2.2 upgrade

  • I just upgraded from 2.2.1 to 2.2.2 using Fantastico, which caused foreign characters to be all messed up as per this thread:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/117865?replies=17#post-620592

    It also made all my text widgets disappear. So I added all the widgets back.

    Then I followed the directions in the thread above to add back these two lines to wp-config.php:
    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    That was the fix when I upgraded TO 2.2.1, and it did work again when the same character problem occurred with the 2.2.2 upgrade.

    However, fixing it this time made my text widgets disappear again, so I re-added those two lines, and got my widgets back.

    Please have a look–you can see the character issue easily as one item in the menubar is “Preguntas Frequentes…” in Spanish. I am using Cleaker 2.1 as a theme.

    Any suggestions for making my foreign characters work
    again???

    Thanks! 🙂
