After upgrading to 7.6.0 I notice now in most text like a question mark icon random all over the text that was not there in version 7.5.9

How can I correct this as shown below as example

Competition oriented tires have rubber compounds that lose flexibility and may develop surface cracks in the tread area at temperatures below -7� C (20� F). Always store competition oriented tires indoors and at temperatures above -7� C (20� F) when not in use.

If the tires have been subjected to -7�C (20�F) or less, let them warm up in a heated space to at least 10�C (50�F) for 24 hours or more before being installed or driving a vehicle on which they are installed.

The all-new 2015 Corvette Z06 is the most powerful production car ever from General Motors, with its all-new LT4 supercharged 6.2L V-8 engine SAE-certified at 650 horsepower (485 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 650 lb-ft of torque (881 Nm) at 3,600 rpm.

More than raw power, the LT4 delivers exceptional capability in a more efficient package, making it one of the most compact 650-horsepower automotive engines in the world.

�The LT4 Small Block delivers the ultimate horsepower and torque for the most capable Corvette ever,� said Jordan Lee, chief engineer and program manager, GM Small Block Engines.
�Its tremendous low-end torque, enabled by a more efficient supercharger, maximizes responsiveness for a driving experience that is on par with the world�s most exotic supercars � with impeccable manners that make it suitable for daily driving.�

To achieve its world-class balance of performance and efficiency, the LT4 leverages the technologies introduced on the 2014 Corvette Stingray�s LT1 Gen 5 Small Block, including direct injection, Active Fuel Management (cylinder deactivation) and continuously variable valve timing, while advancing the supercharging technologies established with the previous-generation Corvette ZR1�s LS9 engine.
That includes a new, more compact and higher output supercharger/intercooler assembly that helps maintain a low hood profile, while also meeting the pedestrian protection requirements in the global markets where the Z06 will take on the world�s supercar comers.
It�s also 20 pounds lighter than the LS9�s supercharger.

�The LT4 is only one inch taller than the naturally aspirated LT1 engine,� said Lee.
�Along with a lower profile under the hood, the new, very compact supercharger helps the engine make power more quickly �
and perhaps more importantly, it helps produce more torque earlier in the rpm band.�

Thanks

Make note of your characterset in /languages/english/generic.php If it's UTF-8 by default now, so just rolling back to iso-8859-1 should make everything look the same.

Yes, you can do it through the language editor in the control panel as well.

Control Panel - Languages - Search / Edit Language Strings then select generic.php language file in Choose Specific Language File.

You also posted this question in 2015. Back when you were scraping content from other websites...
https://www.ubbcentral.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/256380/

NOTE: There is nothing in the UBB.threads 7.6.0 upgrader which would change your default character set from what you were previously using.

The 7.5.9 upgrader had a bug that switched the default to "utf-8". But that has since been corrected in 7.6.0.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of using UTF-8 or iso-8859-1?

If you're starting a NEW forum, UTF8.
If you have the TIME to CONVERT your forum (if you use non-latin characters, you'll likely need to spend some $), UTF8
If you have an EXISTING forum, DO NOT want to convert, or if your native forum language is NOT English, then you'd probably just want to stay at iso-8859-1.

on the topic of utf8 what flavor do you use now for usa-english.
Then newer servers have all kinds of elections for utf8 but none state english or whatever is not even close.to the old iso-8859-1. latin_swedish_ci
Except for like
utf8_bin
utf8_general_ci
utf8_unicode_ci
Plus like 15 other flavors with a language suffix

UTF8_MYSQL_500 I believe it's called, if your MySQL version has the option; otherwise UTF8_GENERAL.

Yes, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16589472/mysql-whats-utf8-general-mysql500-ci

If your server had it available (MySQL 5.5.3+) the choice I'd choose would be utf8mb4_unicode_ci

Otay,
Thanks Giz
I have read that in another place but it was somewhat greek to me.
Since I was looking at converting iso-8859 to utf8.
I should not have any special characters in the db so I was not sure of other steps I may need such as repair tables.

Hmm I'm a bit puzzled here, I noticed my forum now was UTF-8 and since 7.6 i have had a few strange caracters so I checked in the php info

Quote
Directive Local Value Master Value
iconv.input_encoding ISO-8859-1 ISO-8859-1
iconv.internal_encoding ISO-8859-1 ISO-8859-1
iconv.output_encoding ISO-8859-1 ISO-8859-1

so I changed the generic.php to ISO-8859-1

So I read UTF-8 is better but what is you recommendation.
Should I change back to UTF-8 ? but what about the php info up there.. puzzledI am.

UTF8 is best, it's the current standard; if you can either live with the black diamonds for old posts or want to take the time to try to convert them
