Would love a little help here. Simply turning on my plugin is changing the sites encoding such that a dash "-" becomes "â€”". This happen in both my tinyMCE editor (including both Visual and HTML views) and in the posts when seen from the site.
However, immediately upon Deactivating my plugin, it is fixed everywhere.
I have no idea as to why. I reside in the US and develop using standard tools such as NetBeans.
in the Plugin Header I have
Text Domain: my_plugin_name
In troubleshooting, I have tried commenting out all of the add_actions() and just about every section and function of the two files, and still the issue exists.
I have no idea where to look and I know relatively little about encoding in general and I am quite new to developing plugins.
Any help you may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated.
