Feed Won't Validate, Character Set Mismatch, question marks in diamonds in posts
Its just occurred to me that my blog no longer validates according to W3 specifications. Just under two weeks ago I upgraded to wordpress 3.1, which was a bad move, as my theme wasn’t compatible with the new version. So, I followed the steps in downgrading to the previous verions of wordpress (3.0.5) and re-importing the backup I made before trying to upgrade to 3.1.
My site now has weird symbols in the posts (question marks in diamonds), which I think is being caused by a mismatch of character sets in the database. Currently, the posts table is set to latin1_swedish_c1, which almost every other table is utf-8.
I wonder if when I imported the backup, it imported as latin1 instead of utf-8?
Re: my feed, I don’t really know why it broke, also don’t know what I can do to fix it.
Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
