Getting rid of "Replacement Character" symbols

    Hello! I’m new to BBPress and this is my first installation.

    I’m getting � “REPLACEMENT CHARACTER” showing up. Usually this means there’s some encoding interpretation problem. I’ve added the following meta to my heading, but am still getting the replacement characters.

    <meta http-equiv=”Content-Type” content=”text/html; charset=iso-8859-1″>

    Any ideas on how to resolve?

    Thanks bunches.

    I can see lots of ‘?’ – is this your issue??

    It could be a theme or plugin issue

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    come back with the results !

    Your theme is doing this:

    Look at your CSS file, line #95

    
    ul li:before {
      position: absolute;
      font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
      content: "\e98a1e";
      color: #f6cf08;
      font-size: 14px;
      line-height: 20px;
      left: 0;
      top: 0;
    }
    

    It’s inserting content: "\e98a1e"; before every unordered list element.

    You see the same issue on your about page http://bmslifttruck.com/about/

    I’d suggest contacting the theme authors, about this, it has nothing to do with any encoding issues, and p.s. any encoding issues in a WordPress world you should use UTF8 😉
