Apostrophes replaced with question marks.. help! (3 posts)

    I upgraded to WP 2.6.1 under the recommendation of WordPress in order to get Hebrew characters to display on my blog. After the upgrade, they still didn't display so I follow a second set of instructions that advised me to change WP-config from:

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    to:
    define('DB_CHARSET', '');

    That worked brilliantly for my Hebrew characters which now display properly.

    But now I have all these question marks replacing apostrophes in all of my blog posts. There's no way I'm manually going through all 300+ posts and changing it. There must be a back end way to fix it.

    Can anyone help?

    I have the same problem. I was instructed to delete/comment out that same line in config.php because the upgrade to 6.5 had all the apostrophes in my blog changed to bizarre characters like ’

    However now some apostrophes and é are being replaced by � question mark symbols. ot all of them nor in every post, but frequently enough in the older 950+ posts on my blog that to attempt to change them all will take many, many hours.

    Does no one here have any idea what the problem is?
