Here is what I see when looking at the guides in this forum.
Where is that from please?
That looks like an issue with special characters being displayed (in this case the apostrophe in "It's" as well as the quotation marks around and the umlaut in "überdin(s)".) It's annoying, sure, and hopefully there's a bit of a change in coding they can do to reinstate the special characters in older posts, but armed with that knowledge the posts are at least still legible until a fix is implemented for anyone wanting the information.
That particular sample is from this link:
I see this in a lot of old guides.
I'll see if I can clean it up.
Try that. Quoted beneath the original post.
That looks good.
I was hoping it was something that could be fixed globally with a search and replace in your database. Looks like it would be a lot of work to fix all the old guides.
I copied and pasted it into Notepad, searched for the random characters which had replaced ' and replaced them with '.
The umlaut mess, I manually removed.
It's the same with my old postings in which I posted something in German - which usually has a certain amount of umlauts .
When changing from vBulletin to XenForo, something went wrong with the conversion of non-standard characters. In this case, the author probably used something else than the regular apostroph most of the time which isn't in the good old ASCII set of 127 or 255 characters.
