Special characters missing

If you see special characters, specific to your language, like umlauts, etc. converting to some unknown symbols after save, double check the encoding of your database. 

This is how you can do this using phpMyAdmin:

  • log into phpMyAdmin
  • select your database from the list on the left
  • click on "Operations" from the top set of tabs
  • in the Collation box, choose utf8_general_ci¬†collation from the dropdown menu
  • click go.
