    XF 2.1 Left with lots of '

    Going through some of my posts now my forum is set up, I am finding lots of instances of ' and various other spurious characters. I'm sure I saw something on here which would allow the removal/replacement of these types of thing. Can someone point me in the right direction please? Thanks

    Fixed number of posts before allowing access to forum 2
