Support » Plugin: WP Mobile Detector » Upgrade Causing Symbols Issue

  • Resolved freedom1


    Today I noticed on my posts I was getting the symbols  ’ within the text.

    I very recently upgraded the WP Mobile Detector plugin to the latest version 1.7.5

    As yours was the last upgrade I carried out I wondered whether yours could be causing the symbols problem.

    So, I decided to make the plugin inactive, and the problem cleared. This happened on all the sites I had upgraded the plugin on.

    Which theme are you using?

    Do you notice the symbols in the same spot every time? Or is it random?

    Same here.
    After upgrading, I have a problem with special characters.
    I have a french blog, so I have a lot of special characters like é, à, où etc…

    Symbols are at the same spot every time.
    Example : instead of “année” I have année
    and many many other words like that.

    I had to disable your extension to solve my problem.
    I tried to re-encode in utf8 the php file in the extension and uploaded it but it’s the same problem. I think there is a problem in your php.
