    Everything you need to know to setup a forum for non latin language is in the wiki.
    The short story is: mysql database must use utf-8 encoding.
    I recently sorted out a folk's forum in japanese wis the very same problem: the database were latin1 and then any non-latin character is lost an replaced by ?.

    Thai language is tis620 encoding. should i change it to tis620 ? or utf-8? if tis620, i've changed it but still doenst work. still get question marks (??????) Thx u so much

    I advice to use utf-8 which is universal and allows mixing of different characters set (latin AND Cyrillic and Thai and Japanese…)
    Here is a test of random Thai characters: กขฃคฅฆง
    and Cyrillic: привет

    Be aware that changing the database encoding is not enough if you have already installed Vanilla and then created tables inside.
    You must :
    - either empty the database, change default encoding and reinstall
    - or change the database default encoding and export/transcode/import its content as explained in the wiki.
