    hi. i am hosting wordpress in a j2ee webapplication for newscontent.

    users a stored in my database and wordpress uses external db authentication for login.

    i works as i expected - except with some user containing german umlaut signs. (Ä,Ü,Ö,...). I do not allow them in the useridentificaton, but - the name and lastname fields contain them.

    Both databases are Mysql UTF-8 Databases.

    Does anybody know a solution for my problem?

    thank you. thomas

    Hi Thomas,

    I added some MySQL things so that it works now - I tried it with umlauts and cyrillic text. Will post shortly.
