hi friends,

I upgraded b2evo version from 3.3.3 to 5.0.6
and almost felt relief, until noticed that Russian language in COMMENTS not displaying properly.

Meanwhile the rest of the russian language content - in the BODY/POSTS - is all OK.

What might be done to repair russian language encoding in comments ?

example url:


1. After cleaning CASHES and FIRST (F5) reload of page with COMMENTS - (RU)-comments display correctly.
But the next reload of page crashes comment again to broken symbols.

2. If I RESAVE (RU) comment - it displays correctly (on the first page load).
But the next reload of page crashes comment again to broken symbols.

I tried this:
and this:

and these helped me to find my own simple solution.

I noticed, that after "Clear pre-renderered comment cache (DB)" (through b2evo/ admin.php) - my Cyrillic (Russian) comments are displayed properly just once, until the next reload.

So I went to my HOSTING phpMyAdmin and found there TABLES responsible for COMMENTS PRE-RENDERING = evo_comments__prerendering.
For some reason its COLLATION was "latin1_swedish_ci" .
So I changed it manually to "utf8_general_ci" and now at last feel relief ).

Good luck to all !

Hello @acho,

I found some information that could work for you. You might start checking the collation and charset of your database, it's recomended to set all the database to UTF8, this could solve some wrong character issues as you reported. Please follow these links and tell us if they addresses your problem:
