    Since your vBulletin is new and has only a few posts, I suggest reinstalling it with the UTF-8. However the link provided above also has a tool to convert an existing vBulletin to UTF-8. This tool however is unsupported so use it at your own risk.

    UTF-8 is most likely the way forward and converting existing data to another collation can result in data loss so always create backups of your database before attempting any conversions.

    Thank you guys for the links.

    What do you think is easier? Convert the existing Wordpress Database into ISO-... or convert vBulletin (already installed & configured) into UTF-8?

    What makes more sense?

    VBulletin with UTF-8 - where is the setting?

    Hello,

    I am going to connect my vBulletin with my Wordpress Weblog using this add-on:
    Complete Wordpress/Vbulletin Bridge - Share Users And Postings - vBulletin.org Forum

    As both systems need to be running on the same character encoding and changing Wordpress to ISO-8859-1 would mess up all my german characters (already tried it out) I would like to change vBulletin to UTF-8.

    Where can I do this and is it possible without issues?

    My vbulletin forums does not have any important postings yet...just 4 or 5.
widgetinstance 262 (Related Topics) skipped due to lack of content & hide_module_if_empty option.
Working...
