I’ve set aside some time this afternoon/evening to upgrade my two WordPress installs so that they support full unicode and don’t break my pasted Hebrew or emojis. One of them, (this one), is a rather large database with close to twenty years of content in it, and I don’t want to lose any of it. Not being able to use the full unicode character set though has gotten to the point where it’s getting in the way, so I will be glad when this is done. Once I’m done with it I’m going to document it, because if you have a database as large as mine it’s a painful process. This is definitely much easier to do when you’re starting with a fresh install.
