  • Locate the bb-config.php file it might be in your wordpress folder or bbpress and find the define( ‘BB_LANG’

    how and what do I put in there ?

    I also need to display all languages like Japanese and Korean

    Thanks

    You need a FTP program, same way you got the wordpress and bbpress on the server the first time. I would say look at your wp-config.php file and look for line that says define (‘WPLANG’, ‘XX’); Whatever the XX is is what you need to put in your bb-config.php file. define( ‘BB_LANG’, ‘XX’ );

    Hi

    in my wp-config.php is define (‘WPLANG’, ”);

    So there is nothing in it ??????

    Please can you help

    Hi Gibby,

    Your best bet would be to take this over to the BuddyPress folks.

    The bbPress you see inside BuddyPress is actually a hack/modified version of the core (a very very good one mind you); but really you’ll have more chance of getting a good answer other there.

    Good Luck,

    Kev

    Thanks

    I have asked and waiting now for 2 days no reply

    Seems odd that people run these independently fine but together I have this problem

    I will wait for some kind soul to rescue me….

    Thanks for your advice

    Check the tables of your database. Maybe the bbPress tables are in latin1. On the file bb-config.php tell me what is written at this line:

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define( 'BBDB_CHARSET', 'utf8' );

    it must be utf8.

    Hi zaerl

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */

    define( ‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8′ );

    Thanks

    Check the tables of your database. Maybe the bbPress tables are in latin1.

    Open up phpmyadmin and make sure that the collation of tables is utf8_unicode_ci.

    I have

    utf8_general_ci
