My blog is working well but the tag cloud widget shows question marks instead of Ã¤, Ã¶ and Ã¼. Because I use it in german language I depend on those characters. It seems like utf8 isn't read correctly from the database.
In the blog itself Ã¤, Ã¶ and Ã¼ are shown correctly.
No, it's SilverStripe have problems with non-English languages. It problem can be solve http://open.silverstripe.org/ticket/2377, but not for the blog module, so if i set the $this->query("SET CHARACTER SET 'utf8'"); $this->query("SET NAMES 'utf8'"); in sappire. it takes no effect on blog module, guess this problem soved in 2.4.0 version of ss.
