After installing and reinstalling Ninjaboard several times, I cannot get the forum to work, at all. I have already read tips and advice saying to go through and change collation to utf8_general_ci, in mySQL database, and I've done that. The only thing that remains is, for some reason- under MySQL's specs it says "MySQL charset: UTF-8 Unicode (utf8)." Everything else I manually went through and made utf8_general_ci, yes manually, yes all of it. Nothing I can do will change this, NOTHING. I've about had it, I've googled the crap out of myself and read so many forums my eyes are bleeding. Does anyone have ANY advice on this? I've wasted almost 6 hours on trying to get Ninjaboard to work, and I'd really like for that time to pay off because the extension looks fantastic (if it would work), but I'm really close to abandoning it for something else that (is inferior, BUT) WORKS.
Thanks in advance.
