Upgrade affects language (3 posts)

    in order to input chinese characters, I will need to tweak the wp-config after upgrade. But whenever there is a new upgrade, it will override the wp-config changes. Which will render all my previous chinese characters into gibberish. Even after adjusting the wp-config, the characters do not come back, and stays as gibberish.

    is there a permanent solution to keeping the chinese characters? besides not upgrading?

    I have the same problem. I, too, know about the mysql database default settings and changing them to unicode. Does anyone know a way of changing the default of the databases BEFORE creation (or whatever the WordPress database upgrade does?

    Sorry this is not an answer bonitapang, but if I find one, I'll post it back here.

    OK, I found a couple of links that should clear things up, in case anyone else finds this and is still in need:

    Read this whole thread about this issue in Alex King's blog.

    Then this WordPress.org article about it.

    I hope that helps someone!
