XF 1.4 Strange characters in old posts from pre-conversion


Well-known member
Last year I converted from Eve (Infopop) to XenForo... I just noticed that alot of my old posts have strange characters in them:

See where it has weird characters in "doesn't" and "won't" - the apostrophe is all jacked up. Any idea of how to fix this or it is what it is?

Database might have been in an odd character set pre conversion? If that's the most common occurance you can probably use the tool Mike or Kier wrote to do text replacements in posts. I forgot who put it up but it was intended for replacing links and stuff.
