    Whenever i'm adding an Apostrophe to a wordpress post I create


    Its saving as a strange set of characters


    I've used wordpress many times, never encountered this problem

    i've uninstalled every single plugin, and the problem remains

    I read somewhere to comment out these lines in wp-config.php but it doesnt help for new posts

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    //define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    //define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Can someone help me? DO need to set the Charset to override somewhere? HOw??

    Thank you so much

    Try setting it to define('DB_CHARSET', 'UTF-8'); and see what happens
