Unicode the hard way

You may notice something new in the posts on Open Metalcast. Go ahead, look around a bit. Notice anything different?

If you said that all of the posts that have Cyrillic text in them are now displaying properly, you’d be right.

After constant nagging kind prodding by Cyberkiller in the Open Metalcast group, I decided to have a go at getting the Unicode set up properly for this WordPress instance. You’d think this wouldn’t be a herculean task, but man, it’s a pain in the ass. Regardless, you should see much better Unicode support in the future.

In all seriousness, I want to thank Cyberkiller for the gentle prodding. This has been a pain point for a while, and I’m glad that’s finally over.

If you notice any issues with the site, please feel free to let me know. I might not act on it right away, but I’ll at least give it a look. :)

  1. Hey, great you managed to fix the issue, but the part about wanting me is ughm… ;-)

    • Yeah, yeah… leave it to me to leave out the word “thank”. ;)
