activerecord problem when create with characters with accents or special characters

Reported by Alexander C | August 13th, 2010 @ 12:19 AM

Rails version: 2.3.5
Ruby version: 1.8.7

I use the activerecord in order to create a record with special characters contained in a string, then when I look in the database it shows the string broken, ej. before: "texto con carácteres especiales como ñ y otros" after insert or create: "texto con car", the rest of string is missed.

When I check the log I see:

INSERT INTO posts (created_at, title, excerpt, updated_at, blog_id, publish, content, classification_id, author_id, comments_count) VALUES('2010-08-12 22:20:28', 'titulo con caracteres especiales áéíóúÁÉÍÓÚÑñ más caracteres "-,'¿?!ª\|}´{¨¨&%$#@; final del titulo', 'intro de la publicación', '2010-08-12 22:20:28', 1, 0, 'prueba [#5](/projects/8994/tickets/5 "Ticket #5"): contenido de la publicación', NULL, 1, 0)

Apparently all is fine, but in the database appears this:

title excerpt content

titulo con caracteres especiales intro de la publicaci prueba #5: contenido de la publicaci

I using the following configuration:
Adapter: mysql
Connection Encoding: utf8
Table Character-set is: utf8
Table Collation is: utf8_general_ci

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help.

This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
