  • Strange garbled UTF encoding.

    I've recent Imported my phpBB over to vBulletin, but for some reason certian UTF characters have gotten totally garbled.

    "Somewhat ironic"
    “Somewhat ironic…â€ÂÂ

    Is there something I can do (other than update 5000+ posts manually) to correct it?

    Since this is the second report I've seen of this problem, please report it in the 3.5 Bug Tracker:
    Steve Machol, former vBulletin Customer Support Manager (and NOT retired!)
    Change CKEditor Colors to Match Style (for 4.1.4 and above)

      I'm not sure that it's a "bug" with vBulletin or Impex.

      To me it really it seemed to a problem with MySQL Collation in phpMyAdmin. In fact, I have the same garbled character problem on the phpBB board I set up just to convert over to vBulletin.

      More I was trying to find out if someone had the same problem and knew a fix for it other than manually editing 5000+ posts. The bad thing is, I went live with the vBulletin before catching it and more posts have been made.
