International Characters Improvements

We rolled out some changes to the way international characters worked on our platform to support more characters.

There was a bug with older content that had been posted so we rolled back the change.  We’ve made an update to older content yesterday and have rolled out the changes again.  We are continuing to tweak a few things, for example with comments.  Typically it would mean some characters showing up as ??? on your site.

Let us know if you find any other issues.

    Is there a way to opt out of your upgrades- EVERY TIME you make changes it crashes my site and it seems at the WORST POSSIBLE times- when i am in the middle of marketing campaigns. You people continue to cost me money- and could you PLEASE PLEASSSSSSSE inform me via email to my email (which i know you have and send the bill to) when you are gonna make changes so i can warn my readers my site wont work right for a few days

    I had a different site up before and deleted it for lack of traffic. I have a new one up, which has done fairly well over the last two days. My problem is, on the site I deleted, it had a log-in/sign-in button on the home page. The new site I have up, there is none. The returning visitors (and me as well) have to go to the members page, click “join”, then click “already a memeber?” just to log on. What happened to the sign-in button??

      @Whisperingwind: This option is this there. Please make sure your sidebars are turned on. To do so, go to edit your site –>manage sidebars.
