Today I found this great plugin, very excited!

But there is a bug ( Maybe it is a bug, I am not sure) to me, when I submit the form using Chinese characters, and all the text are ???? , and I start to take a look at the code, and found in cforms.php , if we comment out this line, everything will go just fine. Thought maybe someone like me want to know this.:

//$value = mb_convert_encoding(utf8_decode($params ['field_' . $i]), get_option('blog_charset'));   // convert back and forth to support also other than UTF8 charsets


Thanks for your work.

If your blog runs UTF8, you may want to try this: Item 1 in the FAQs

The line/code in question was introduced to support non UTF8 blogs, going forward I'll include some logic in the plugin that'll detect if UTF8 is present since this seems to be an issue for some UTF deployments.

Thanks for the feedback!
