I'm still using Joomla 1.5 'cos I have Virtuemart 1.x.x
Recently I installed a pretty good component called JoomlaStat for web analytics. It works well, but there's one problem. It's does display those visited paged that are written in Cyrillics. I double-checked with hosting and I ran phpinfo.php test. What developers recommended is installed on the server. Now... I read at couple of forums that if one changes in PhpMyAdmin those table that belong to the component from Latin Swedish to UTF8 general_ci collation, it would do the trick. I went and manually changed everything to UTF8 general_ci, but in 95% of the cases, it all remained the same. Couple of places do show Cyrrilic characters correctly, but 95% is like that ? ? ? (just the question marks strings).
