From ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8
When I started my WordPress blog I chose to play it in ISO-8859-1 for some reason that I can’t remember — but as far as I know it was just. (It might’ve been a database thing, but I really don’t know.) But, since I don’t remember why I did it I see no reason to keep it that way.
Now, seeing as UTF-8 is “the future” and a broader charset, I thought I should approach the task of converting my blog from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8. That brings me to a few questions:
1. Is it really possible?
2. How, as a Windows user, would I go about to to it?
3. And what would one need to think about not to miss anything?
I’ve got pretty much everything covered when it comes to the .mo language files and converting them back and forth, as well as setting the charset in WordPress and stuff.
The only thing I can see that I need to do really is convert the charset of all the entries and comments in the database to UTF-8. Can this be easily done?
