iso-8859-7 to utf-8

  1. How can i change the encoding of my base files (posts and comments) so when I change to utf-8 encoding my blog will remain readable???

  2. Base files? I don't know if we have access to those here at WordPress.com. Do you host your own blog yourself? If so, you should ask here at the WordPress.org forum because the software runs differently:

  3. nope it's wordpress.com hosted... all ideas are welcome

  4. I believe you should send a feedback to staff with a link back to this thread.

  5. Have you tried:

    Options -> Reading
    Syndication Feeds
    Encoding for pages and feeds

    By default, at least on my blog, the encoding type is set to UTF-8

  6. well when i imported my blog's posts and comments from blogger i had to change to iso-8859-7 in order to have a readable blog, changing to utf-8 turns it unreadable... i have used the feedback to report the situat├Čon... thank you people

  7. I think changing the encoding only works for future posts, not ones aready made.

  8. drmike i got that... i think something like the use the following plugin for wordpress.org blogs could help wordpress.com blogs but i am not sure if there are any security concerns...

  9. I would suggest sending in a feedback and suggest it and why you think it's needed to staff but I would think that it would cause more issues than solve.
