One of my sites was hacked but it looks as though the backup had been hit too. Groan.
Every page of my site shows (in Firebug) -
<html lang="en" dir="ltr">
wp_config is set to - 'define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');'
and phpMyadmin shows all tables set to utf8.
This prevents use of £ (pound sterling) and other 'special' characters.
I've been hunting around for days now - trouble is, there are so many issues with CHARSET that it's a job to find anything relevant to my problem!
I've re-loaded my theme (Suffusion) from scratch and I've exported and re-imported my database - no joy.
Any suggestions on what I should do next?
