Show question mark in text

Hey everyone,

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 ?

Thank you,

Hi @Lukas,

Ensure that your character set configuration in 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.
