Japanese Garbled after Upgrade

Hi All,

The Japanese I've used on my website in Forum Category Names, User Rank Titles, and in the content of forum posts themselves has all been garbled after I upgraded from 2.3.3 -> 2.4.4.

For example, this: 村長
has become this: 村長

Is there any way I can recover / undo this?

Thanks,

Re: Japanese Garbled after Upgrade

Probably only if you have backup.

Unless this change is due to UTF-8 conflict and your content is still intact inside the database.

Then you could export the table in question as SQL file, open in something like Notepad++, convert to "UTF-8 without BOM", and import the table back into the database.

Of course, before you do that, make an extra backup of your database, just in case...
