  • Resolved billychow


    The package is downloaded from the offical site.
    I’ve posted more detail in here:
    It seems not just those bugs.
    The space, or janpanese or korean, even asia charset isn’t work well with WP.
    I tested in WP2.0.1, no these bugs.

  • It does. TONS of people use WordPress in Chinese. I believe you just need to change the character set that WordPress uses to one that supports all of the Chinese characters.

    And try here:

    And you should really, really upgrade to the latest version of WordPress by the way. 😉

    Thanks for your help.
    I’ve found that what’s the reason now.
    Someone reminded me to remember that the MySql’s Version of Server is 5.0…
    Then i have used “PhpMyAdmin” to set the charsets of database and every table of wp’s to utf8_bin.
    It seems better now.
    But still having a little converting mistaken, so i wanna to know what’s the charset of your wp’s database?
    Then i would followed your ways to solved this problem.

    Oh yeah…
    You’re right.
    I don’t realize that offical released the version is just for English(UTF-8)…

    This errors message has just catched:
    WordPress database error: [Illegal mix of collations (utf8_general_ci,IMPLICIT) and (gbk_chinese_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation ‘=’]
    SELECT comment_ID FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_post_ID = ‘1’ AND ( comment_author = ‘billy_mfk’ OR comment_author_email = ‘’ ) AND comment_content = ‘杩樻槸TMD鐨勮€侀棶棰? LIMIT 1

    I change the database charset to gbk_chinese_ci, it not shown that error ever.
    but the wp converts the Chinese string is also wrong…

    I strongly recommended that Official website’s download page should offer the Internation Version List download…
    Otherwise, i think there will be more people made the same mistakes like me.
