  • UTF-8 language problem

    Sorry about my "non-technical" phrasing of my problem below.

    I use the default English language in vBulletin and most of my users post in English, but some of my users post in Chinese occasionally. I have set the language option of vBulletin to UTF-8. Most of the things are fine, but some (not all) chinese characters are not displayed properly (like "you" and "police" in Chinese), and a "?" will show up instead.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    Is this happening to existing posts only or also to new posts (after the character set change)?
    Best Regards

    Please don't contact me per PM.

        I also have this problem too

        90% of Chinese characters are shown properly, but some chinese characters become unreadable characters.

        I have set the character set in config.php as utf8. I have checked the character set of the table vb_post is utf8.

            If I knew the answeer I would have responded.

            I'll see if I can get a Dev to look at this for you.
