I have some older threads that have character issues. Is there a fix for this?
Anyone? Was this an import error perhaps?
It's an issue with importing from vBulletin.
@mistypants had the same issue when she moved KH-Vids from vBulletin to XenForo, though I'm not sure if a fix was ever found.
You can run SQL queries to update the text.
UPDATE xf_post SET message = REPLACE(message,'current_content','new_content');
Take a backup first.
I don't what would cause this but it looks like it is fixable (looks like replaceable sequences) with this addon - http://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-content-find-replace.1549/
