Strange Control Characters Appearing In Posts And Pages

Over the weekend we had to do a site restore of all sites due to an update going wrong. This had 2 effects:

  1. Schools that blogged on Saturday morning lost that content. To date we know of 2 schools that were affected and we apologise sincerely for the inconvenience caused.
  2. We are aware that on a number of sites strange character combinations have been appearing. For example, apostrophes have been replaced with â€™ and bullet points with ï‚·

This latter problem has not affected all sites, and is not even consistent within individual sites or posts. If you see any strange characters appearing in posts, feel free to edit them out yourself, or send us the link to the affected post and we'll edit the post, page or slide for you.

Once again, we're sorry for any inconvenience caused by this issue.

Update 15th Dec: We can now fix the control character problem without editing individual posts. Just notify us of an affected site and we will sort it for you.
