  • Resolved slevenln


    Hello .. I’m using the latest version of WordPress, when I try to write in Arabic any post it turns into ” ?????? ” question marks like this ..
    I’ve googled the subject and I found out about the character encoding in both the DB and WP .. set both of them to the correct value, in DB = utf8-general-ci and in WP UTF-8 .. and I thought the problem should be resolved but no it’s still not , so if anyone can help ..

  • Are you using the Arabic WordPress? WHat version?


    No, I’m using the Original Version ..

    If you want Arabic why not use the Arabic version?
    Someone has already done the work for you. The English/General release is set to filter the arabic characters (look at your wp-includes/formatting.php) so you would have much, much to do to fully integrate Arabic.

    I don’t like the dashboard in arabic .. I just want to write in arabic – sometimes – anyway the dilemma is that I have wordpress on my localhost , and I can’t write arabic perfectly , but online it is not , although it is the same version ..

    I think that is beyond what can be answered in this forum or I have time for. It also may develop new issues.
    TO start with you need to allow All characters (as I mentioned the formatting.php) which santizes input and fields. But I think you will need to do more than that to make it fully usable.
