    This problem relating to your pligg database. You should change database collation to "utf8_general_ci".

    PhpMyAdmin ->your database->Operation->utf8_general_ci->Go.

    It shows in error log "PHP Warning: Illegal mix of collations (latin1_swedish_ci,IMPLICIT) and (utf8_general_ci,COERCIBLE) for operation '=' in /volume1/web/libs/db.php on line 479"

    Hi, this is not working for my site, it is already setting utf8_general_ci during installation, but Chinese characters still became many question marks.

Including Files or Code

Sometimes it is necessary for you to attach a file or include a snippet of code for others to reference in your response. In most cases, you can .zip up files and attach them to a question or answer using Pligg's file manager. At times though this may fail, and in these circumstances we recommend using a third party host. Below we are including a list of recommended websites where you can share easily share file uploads (or snippets of code) through the web.
