[resolved] Blog posts attacked by symbols (4 posts)

    Hope someone can push me in the right direction - many of my blog posts have been attacked by symbols.

    What I mean is, things that were apostrophes, quotation marks, even blank spaces have been replaced by symbols.

    And when I try to edit the symbols out and update, only the first few lines are left - the rest is deleted altogether.

    What can I do?

    Thanks,

    Luke

    try this
    replace this in your wp-config.php:

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    with this:

    // define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    // define('DB_COLLATE', '');
