Characters dispayed as boxes
« on: January 16, 2020, 03:19:35 am »
Hi all!
I posted a problem I'm having over at the SMF forums. I got a good answer but I'm still looking for a better solution and I was hoping you lovely people would be able to help.

First off: We're running SMF 1.1.11 with the following Mods:
1. Aeva Media 1.0     
2. Version Emulate Dropdown 1.1   
3. Password Protect Boards 0.2     
4. SimplePortal 2.3.1   
5. Favicon 1.3   
6. Admin Notepad 2.0   
7. Global Headers Footers 2.0   
8. Ignore Another User 1.1
9. Hide Unused Profile Display Fields

The problem:

At our forum we have writers. Writers that write a lot in Word processing programs and then copy and paste to share their writing. For some, the apostrophes, quote marks, ellipses all get replaced with funky characters, but more often than not, it's boxes.

I would check your character encoding and make sure it is set to utf8 word uses utf8 characters so that may cause the issue.
There is an option to convert it under admin -> forum maintenance.
