    Most of the time you can solve this by editing your language and changing the HTML character set from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8. (Case Sensitive)

    In some cases you will need to specify a UTF-8 Locale as well.

    AdminCP -> Languages & Phrases -> Language Manager.

    Weird characters showing up in posts

    Just recently, I've noticed that things like apostrophes are being converted to question marks when some users post them.

    I've done a bit of research on this and it looks like it comes primarily when users post from an iOS device and have smart punctuation turned on.

    And while I can instruct people to turn off smart punctuation to fix the issue, I am curious if there is a better way to address this. Do I need to change my character set to UTF-8? And if so, what does that entail?

    I don't have any modifications at all on our forum or plugins.
