Problem with accented characters stripped from text editor when saving

May 11, 2013 3.5k views
I have moved a few sites from another host to my droplet and have a problem with the text editor. All text is stripped past any accented character when I save the article or the page. It happens in html or in wysiwyg view, in Wordpress or Joomla, even on a fresh install of WP or Joomla. Seems like a server configuration. Has anybody a clue, didn't find a solution in two days...

Do you have your MySQL tables set to utf8? It should be fix accented characters.
Yes, there are set to utf8.

The problem is now solved, it came from a faulty mbstring configuration.
I'm glad to hear that! :]
