Subject [jira] [Closed] (ROL-1936) Special characters are converted to ?? when editing comments
Date Sat, 07 Jun 2014 03:19:02 GMT


Glen Mazza closed ROL-1936.

    Resolution: Cannot Reproduce

With 5.1 trunk, at least, I wasn't able to reproduce (although I believe I was able to at
one time, long ago.)  I entered and edited Icelandic text from the 'Net and had no problem
editing its exotic characters -- adding, copying/pasting, etc.

Perhaps your database wasn't created to use UTF8?  Our install guide for mysql recommends:
create database rollerdb DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8 DEFAULT COLLATE utf8_general_ci;  (Although
that wouldn't explain why the original commenter's special characters reproduced fine.)

posting "Torbjørn".
