Support » Fixing WordPress » garbled subject line in place of unicode characters

  • Hi Everyone,

    I recently upgraded to WP 2.6.2 from 2.0.5.

    Because I have unicode on my site, I didnt change my wp-config.php file – as I know that changing that file is not necessary for upgrade anyway.

    After this upgrade, all the emails I get from wordpress – for comments – the subject line (which is suppose to have my site name & post heading in unicode) – turned to garbled characters.

    I tried to contact my host – bluehost – if they can help – they have no idea why this is happening and what to change to make it right.

    I am not that tech person, so I am not sure where to look for the solution. Can anyone please help?

    Also there is one more issue – Before few months when bluehost had changed something on my site from php4 to php5 – that had turned all the unicode characters into ??? ?? ????

    And, that issue is still there. All the comments I get in unicode are still not readable. So, before upgrade my comments email were : question marks in subject line and question marks within email body, which has now changed to garbled characters in subject line & question marks within email.
