Support » Fixing WordPress » those crazy Â’s

  • Why would I be getting these: Â in my posts. They occure after every period, where I start a new sentence. I use WP admin to write all my posts. Do I have some crazy Â’s option turned on?

    ex, just look at the 1st post and a few others.

  • Okay – you don’t copy and paste into the admin, you just type from scratch right into it?

    And are you using the rich-text editor or the plain-text editor?

    I don’t see it unless I change character encoding in my web browser from utf-8 to just about anything else.

    But there is something strange being added to post content. Each sentence ends with what appear to be two spaces, but after downloading a copy of your page and performing a search on whatever the first “space” or control character is, I only get hits on those locations (end of sentence) in the document.

    So, *my* first question: What plugins are you running?

    Second: What is encoding set to under Options > Reading?

    By the way, great illustrations you got there.

    -I type from scratch right into it.

    -No plugins are running.

    -UFT-8 is the encoding option.

    Btw, all this is default from the first installation of WP.

    Any ideas?

    about the illos, thanks! 🙂

    Sorry to bump this up, but it got buried before I could reply to the questions.

    Any ideas now with the info I gave?

    Assuming you mistyped and meant “UTF-8” I’m not sure what could fix this, assuming all thing being normal. One thing to look at is to add this to the beginning of the <head> element in your theme template(s):

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php bloginfo('charset'); ?>" />

    WordPress should already be sending this info through an HTTP header, but one never knows.

    Another thing to try, if presently using rich text editing, is to switch to the basic editor (Users > Your Profile, Personal Options) and then edit a post.
