WordPress users: how to publish in non-western characters?

I’ve finally found a simple solution on how to publish in non-western characters like Chinese, Japanese or Korean. After looking for some plugins, most of them are for translating languages or require some kind of modifications to the template, which I thought was totally unnecessary. So I remained patient, keep looking and eventually did I find a way!

There are four easy steps to accomplish this.

1) go to the wp-config file in your wordpress directory.

2) you will see this line:

define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

3) put a comment, //, to the beginning of lines:

//define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

This deactivates character encoding in the database that holds entries.

4) Save and exit.

And you’re all done! happy multilingual-ing. :-)

Cross Post for Xanga

While looking for plugins to enhance the use of WordPress, I stumbled onto this plugin that allows you to “cross-post” in your Xanga post. It was designed for Xanga users who prefer to stay in their own world. They even call themselves Xangains, or something like that. Think of it as a simultaneous tool so that you don’t have to post twice. Post in WordPress, then it’ll post in Xanga too. Hopefully, they’re brave enough to get out of their world and pay someone a visit. ;-)

The plugin is called Croissanga. Doesn’t that sound like a nice name?

*note: there is another similar plugin so I’m currently testing it to compare.

*updated* Couldn’t get the second plugin working due to some error in HTTP request, so this will do it for now. I notice a little longer delay as it sends a transmission to Xanga website. Well, hope it’s worth the posting.
