W3 Total Cache causing random characters to appear in text of website (2 posts)

    There are random characters appearing in my text and I can't get rid of it. I try to put the text in notepad and then paste it in and that doesn't fix it. I then try to type it fresh and that doesn't help either. I'm not sure how to fix this. There is an example at the bottom. I updated my wordpress and headway. When I deactivate W3 Total Cache, it doesn't show these characters anymore...then when I reactive W3 Total Cache, and clear the cache, the characters come back. It seems like it's a problem with W3 TOtal Cache, but still want to be able to use this plugin. How do I fix this??

    Sample of what is happening: Once a month, we will randomly draw a name from the organizations that contact us and offer a FREE GIVEAWAY! The Giveaway will be a free customized social media page (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or Flckr). If you have these social media pages already, we will provide another comparable service of your choice.

    See this thread for a temporary solution:

    Just add

    AddDefaultCharset utf-8

    to your htaccess file in the wp-content/cache/page_enhanced folder and voila problem resolved!
