Support » Fixing WordPress » WP-config and Firefox/Explorer issues

  • Hello everyone. I have a very strange problem.

    I run a blog at and have problems with the WP-config file.

    When I include the sentences

    define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);
    define(‘DB_COLLATE’, ”);

    my blog shows perfectly in Firefox, but the Danish characters are wrong in Explorer.

    However, if I leave the two sentences out, the blog shows perfectly in Explorer, but looks wrong in Firefox!!!

    I have tried with different collation-values, but the same results.

    Strangely: One post shows perfectly no matter what:

    Recently I have converted my database from latin1 to utf8 using this plug-in: It worked, but perhaps some problems have arisen?

    Any ideas?

  • Please, any comments? This must be a problem other people are having as well?

    Meanwhile I have discovered, that when I force IE to read the page in utf-8, it works (except for the pound-sign). What can be done to force IE to always read in utf8?
