From Latin1 to UFT8 – Issues
I’ve built a website for teaching Irish, which has á é í ó ú in it’s alphabet (you probably know where this is going). I saw that my database was set to UTF8_general_ci but noticed when creating post, the post cut off after an accented letter.
I then followed the steps to convert the DB to latin1 and changed the ‘Reading’ under the WordPress dashboard to latin1 and this solved the problem for posts.
However, it seems that the Buddypress Posts and AJAX functionality ignore the latin1 characterset from WordPress as it displays the accents as strange characters. E.g. tést is appearing as tÃ©st when I post something from a group ‘Whats new in Group A’.
If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly apperciated as since its a language website, these characters (á é í ó and ú for Irish) are very important.
