I was creating new submissions, when my text appears in question marks. I was writing in Lithuanian language words, for example: (Aa Ąą Bb Cc Čč Dd Ee Ęę Ėė Ff Gg Hh Ii Įį Yy Jj Kk Ll Mm Nn Oo Pp Rr Ss Šš Tt Uu Ųų Ūū Vv Zz Žž)
Tried to edit letters in database, but still it converts into question marks.
Monginait? → Monginaitė
Dzinkevi?ius → Dzinkevičius
What should i try to do ?
Ensure that your character set configuration in
config.inc.php uses UTF8. For example:
client_charset = utf-8
connection_charset = utf8
database_charset = utf8
If you’ve been using OJS in a different configuration, you may have to transcode your database with a tool like
iconv. Also ensure your database itself is configured to store data in the UTF8 encoding.
