Support » Fixing WordPress » I’ve lost the bullets in the sidebar lists

  • I have lost all the double arrow ‘ยป’ bullets from my blog. I have tweaked the Kubrick theme… When I use the default Kubrick theme the double arrows come back, but when I use my template they now turn into boxes.

    I ran my website through and it had trouble with the charset=UTF-8 and gave the following message:

    “Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 8 it contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character encoding indication.

    The error was: utf8 “\x92” does not map to Unicode “

    I don’t know where to go to fix this. Can someone direct me to the page(s) that need to be fixed?

    You would need to provide URL for others to help you.

    The bad character is probably in your excessively long list of meta keywords. I’d recommend that you reduce your keyword list a bit, redo it and hand type it this time (not copy-paste), and don’t include in any of your keywords. Copy and pasting can occasionally bring along nasty, hard to find text gremlins and byte-order marks (BOM).

    Thanks for the assist…

    I took out ALL keywords and typed in just a couple without any apostrophes… I still don’t have the bullets.

    Would there be any other ideas?

    Thank you again!

    For now, I have changed the charset from utf-8 to iso-8859-1 … my bullets are back.

    Perhaps this is not the right fix, if not please advise.

    Thank you,
