Hello,

I have problems with utf-8 language files / database entries.
My site is not in english.
geeklog is configured to use utf-8 language files
($_CONF... language, /locale / default_charset).
database entries are in utf-8.
problem:
topic names are shown correctly and stories not. (problems with not english caracters)
if for quick solution i add to function DB_query (in file lib-database.php)
mysql_query ('set names utf8');
then stories are OK and topics names are not OK.
if I convert database entries (already in utf-Cool again to utf-8, then this solves most problems, but some characters (cap U umlaut) is not shown correctly.

in phpMyAdmin 2.8.2.4, on page "variables" some values for charset are utf8, some latin1. Is this OK?

How to solve this problem?
