Display Chinese Characters in WordPress

Chinese characters show up by default in WordPress as ???. In order to show them properly, you’ll need to edit the following lines in the wp-config.php file:

define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
define('DB_COLLATE', '');

Comment out the lines by adding two forward slashes at the beginning of each line:

//define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
//define('DB_COLLATE', '');

Et voila! Well, you may need to re-publish your posts, but the Chinese characters should display properly now.

Talk to me, Goose.
