i have a problem with chinese character display, i have set all the encode to utf-8, so i think it suppose to be displayed in any language.
but i found all the character save in db is ???, that's why i see the ??? on page, and some also said if u use mysql below 4.1, there is no problem, is that true?
any solutions let mysql 4.1 support utf-8?
i also have read the install guide , there is a paragraph maybe refer to this problem:
Note for MySQL users
If you're going to use MySQL 4.1 or newer, please pay attention to the fact that starting from this version (the mysql version, not JForum) many architectural changes were made. By default, now the system runs using the UTF-8 character set (previous versions lack support for it), and it may result in some problems depending the way you configured JForum to connect to MySQL. Regular installations will opt to use unicode and UTF-8 as character encoding, but, when using MySQL 4.1+, you shoudl avoid id.
To do that, open the file mysql.properties and change the value of the keys "mysql.encoding" and "mysql.unicode" to empty (eg, mysql.unicode= ).[code]
but i found my mysql.properties file has alread be set that. i use the wizard install. [originally posted on jforum.net by Anonymous]
