    hope for your help

    Thanks nisigia. Bad news I think I know the problem and I’m not sure how to fix it easily. Will you confirm this?

    Your wp_bp_* MySQL tables are of type ‘utf8′ but wp_bb_* are of latin1?

    you are right – in the collation column i have “latin1_swedish_ci” & “utf8_general_ci”. could you drive me from here?

    The problem is that they need to be the same (ideally, utf8) – this gives the ??? problem.

    I’ve just done a test install and it’s installed the databases with these types.

    If you look on the bb-config.php in the root directory of your site, I bet the “charset” is set to “UTF” — but the database tables are still installed as latin1.

    The forums component is probably the weakest area of my BuddyPress knowledge. I’ve had a look at the code and I can’t see anything obviously wrong. I’ll let you know once I have news.

    i confirm bb-config.php is set to “utf8″

    i changed all Collations from wp_bb_ “latin1_swedish_ci” to “utf8_general_ci”

    i deleted the old entries and create new ones – character problem is SOLVED – everything is now readable. ;)

    thank you vm for your time and precious help djpaul.
