    Hi,

    I was hacked on a site that had the default 1 step install. I cleaned all the files and cleaned the database SQL before changing the prefix and re-uploading it to a new non-standard db. So, new files, new database.

    Here is the oddity i have left.

    In Settings, “Susie’s Grill” gets stored in db as “Susie's Grill” and gets displayed in Admin bar as as “Susie+ACYAIw-039+ADs-s Grill”.

    Any ideas?

    If I store the name in PHPMySql it looks fine in the Admin Bar, if I update the Blog Name in settings it is back to the goofy looking name.

    Thanks!

    Does the character encoding on the new database match the DB_CHARSET setting in wp-config.php?

    Yes, they are both utf8.

    What happens if you carry out a fresh installation without importing your old database contents?

    It looks normal.

    The data is correct in the database. I verified it with PHPMyAdmin. It is in the display of the information that the issue pops up.
