How to resolve question marks and mysterious symbols on my site?

If you are seeing some strange symbols that are displaying on your site, it is due to incorrect database or incorrect page encoding. Your website needs to have a UTF-8 meta tag and also change the page encoding.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Also, you can add the below line to the top of index.php file of your website.

header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8');

If your files are encoded with UTF8 with BOM, you will need to change it to UTF8 without BOM. You can use notepad++ to change the file encoding.
