I have a client who has asked if we can include some chinese on our english site. Coincidentally, I have another new client who wants a multilanguage site (English, Chinese and Spanish), so I really need to determine if WB can handle this or if i need to find another CMS for my new client!
So back to my problem. When I type in the Chinese Characters (actually copy them from some text from my client), they appear just fine in the editor (FCKEditor), and same goes for the source view. When I save it and view the page, they are jumbled english symbols and characters -- "ä¼¯ä½©çŸ¥" -- (almost as if they were encoded twice or something?). I took a look in the database in the mod_wysiwyg table and in the content field, the characters look like the jumbled text, but in the text field, they are correctly encoded -- "伯佩知". Unfortunately, the content field is what shows up on my web page! Both fields are encoded in the db the same: utf8_general_ci -- so is this a problem with the FCKEditor?
I have been looking all over the place for a solution to this, and nothing is telling me exactly what to do. One post on a forum for the FCKEditor told me to remove a call to utf8_encode in the PHP for the editor, but I don't want to break my clients site or mess up her content by changing that.
Can anyone help? I would love to use WB for my other project!
I hope this editor doesn't encode the characters I included above!!! I never did enter the chinese characters...just the encoded and possibly doubly encoded ones.
