In trying to set up phorum and MU wordpress together using utf-8 throughout the entire site and given we've have already set "utf-8" as the charset for all the webpages, we have a problem. (We're running Windows 2003, Apache 2.0.59, PHP4.4.2 and MySQL Server Ver. 4.1.16.)
While Chinese characters seemingly can be input and displayed normally and are searchable using the search engine that comes with WordPress, however, within PHPMyadmin we find that the characters are not displayed as Chinese characters, just a bungle of codes. Is there anyway we have the characters displayed properly?
