Emojis in posts and comments on a 500+ posts blog get converted automatically into single question marks in irregular and untraceable intervals.

The respective tables wp_comments and wp_posts are configured to have a utf8mb4_unicode_ci collation, albeit in a latin1 / latin1_swedish_ci database, which (to my understanding) shouldn't be a problem, as long as the tables are configured correctly, right?

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I was searching for a solution for months on end now and I just can't pinpoint the culprit here. Thanks in advance for any hints.

  • Check your plugins. Sometimes they will turn off functionality you expect. First disable the ones that change fonts, most likely the culprits. – Nathan Powell May 28 '18 at 6:50
