    Hello, I did all, but again my posts are displaing like ?????.]
    wat shall i do?

    You did what?
    When displaying ????? or other similar things – it is always a problem with encoding mismatch.

    I’ve installed WP 2.6 through Fantastico and got the same problems with UTF-8. Writing a post in Ukrainian and Russian Languages resulted in Question Marks like that: “?????????? ??????”. I tried everything and nothing helped, so, lastly, I downloaded the same WP 2.6 from your web site (, installed it and everything worked perfect!
    Just curious: Is that the bug in Fantastico or problems with my Hosting? (Because I completely reinstalled WP through Fantastico several times that did not help…)
    But hopefully everything works fine now with installation downloaded from If You’ve got problems use that instead.

    I have the same problem with my WP. It replaces my text in Persian with question marks. Does anyone know how it can be fixed? I mean a way other than re-installing WordPress.

    Ok. The problem is the way the database is set to Western languages instead of UTF-8.
    Use this plugin to fix the problem:
