I'm using an RSS feed importer. When i preview the feed, the special characters such as è,à and so on are throwing out gibberish.
Searching on the WP.org forum I came across the suggestion to add the code below to the wp-config file.
Adding the code hasn't made any difference at all. My DB is in utf-8 format.
define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); // force utf8 define('DB_COLLATE', 'utf8_general_ci'); // force collation
Any suggestions on this please? As I cannot add new tags (encoding/utf) putting this to the nearest available tag.
è is displayed as � ì is displayed as �¬ and so on
