hi jannah

im having the same problem in a couple weeks ago, but its fixed now  :)

this is what i did

go to your cpanel>phpmyadmin

convert the database collation into utf8_general_ci
then convert the collation in every single table in the database into utf8_general_ci
then go to your admin page > maintenance : Converted all html language entities to UTF8

dont forget to put your site in maintenance mode while converting the DB

good luck then   ;)

NB : i didnt even use the arabic-utf8 files or English-UTF8

using arabic-utf8 files didnt solve the problem, its just change the default languange into arabic

I am using Malay language as default and i can still post in arabic. Make sure the default language (whatever that is) is set to use utf8 version. UTF8 can read arabic whatever language that is.
