Hello,

Are you importing CSV with these characters? or adding these manually in Add Location? Please let me know how exactly you're getting this issue.

Thanks

No I am not importing any file, just manually adding locations and address info. They all doesn't support special characters, just showing "?" instead.

Hello,

I found that this issue is happening when collation property of location_title and location_message columns are not utf8_general_ci in the wp_map_locations table in mysql.

1. Using PHPMYADMIN - So you just need to change collation property to utf8_general_ci for location_title and location_message columns.
2. Using Queries - You need to run following queries using phpmyadmin or using $wpdb object.

ALTER TABLE wp_map_locations MODIFY location_title varchar(255) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
ALTER TABLE wp_map_locations MODIFY location_messages text CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

3. Delete all tables related to this plugin and install the plugin again.

If you can send me wp login, i can remove all the tables related to this plugin and then can reinstall the plugin to solve this issue.

Thanks

Hello,
I have the same issue (2 years later).

I cant export correctly the locations that have characters like

ß, Ø, ô


etc.

In the website and in the db they are correctly saved, but when I export them to csv, they're all messed up:

Straße
Østergade
Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur


I have already applied the fix you wrote above, but I can't delete the added locations, since there are too many and Im NOT adding them all over again.

Please advise.

Thanks

Hello,
I think you have not updated your plugin yet to the latest version 4.0.1. Please update it.

Hello Divyang,
The plugin is updated to v 4.0.1 already.
Have you tried adding those letters in the address of a location, then tried to export it?
