When I copy and past from Microsoft word into a new post in WordPress, it changes curly quotes to question marks when I save it. So “Test” with curly quotes gets changed to ??est when I hit save draft.
I tried changing these settings in wp-config. They are currently commented out.
When I put them back in, it still messes up the characters, but differently. “Test” with curly quotes gets changed to ÅÕest.
I’ve tried removing utf8 and tried some plugins like “full-utf-8”, but that doesn’t seem to help.
Also, my bbpress doesn’t allow me to save entries with curly qoutes. It just gets saved as a blank post.
Does this mean it’s my database version that’s causing a problem?
