Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgrade affects language

  • 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 hope that helps someone!
