by the way, i have made a database backup of my old 2.7 installation  and restored this to the new 4.4.0M installation.

This may be the fault? Can i fix this?

Hi Daric, Just taking a stab in the dark here try from here http://www.w3schools.com/charsets/ref_utf_dingbats.asp in the "Mark" field which should get you ✔. Everytime I enter the code in this message it displays the checkmark.

Hi Daric,

Since you restored your 2.7 database, I assume your MySQL database character encoding is not set to utf-8.

I suggest to convert the character encoding of your database to utf-8.
Use for instance the tool phpMyAdmin and follow the steps hereafter:

1) Back up your calendar database

2) Then set the default char set on the database with the SQL statement . . .

ALTER DATABASE dbname CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci; (replace dbname with the real name)

This does not convert the existing tables, it only sets the default for newly created tables.

3) Then convert the char set for all calendar tables . . .

ALTER TABLE mycal_events CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE mycal_groups CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE mycal_users CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE mycal_categories CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE mycal_settings CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;


(Note: The table name prefix mycal could be different for your calendar)

If this doesn't work, send me the back up file and I will try to convert it for you.
