Strange characters Problem on forum
« on: May 14, 2011, 09:40:29 PM »
Hi, I am getting strange characters on my LINK TREE and at my Search area above.
The characters look like this " ÄÂ"
The issue started when I was making edits and saved it as UTF8
pls how do I resolve that.

Hi soki2lg.

What's the character set of your forum? (files and database)

Think about Search function before posting.
Pensez à la fonction Recherche avant de poster.

This can happen when the php files are saved in a different character set than the charset is defined. (same for the database; or there could also be incongruities between the charsets of the php files and the database).
