character encoding in use display name

  • I have changed the encoding in my database, from latin 1 to utf8, and everything is ok except for the display of the usernames set in wordpress “display name” and brougt in to bbpress with the “use dispaly name”-plugin. When I use special characters like swedish å, ä or ö, or e.g. é, they show up like �.

Names in the wp_users “display_name” however are stored with the latin character but show up wrong.

    The conversion was made following this manual:

    Any thoughts on this, anyone?
