Stop strange charters appearing in wordpress websites

An issue that makes apostrophes appearing as ‘â€TM’ on wordpress websites. This problem occur when you copy and paste text from websites or word documents.

Solution is;

Open up the config.php and comment out the lines which are

define(”DB_CHARSET”, ”utf8”);

define(”DB_COLLATE”, ””);

change them to

//define(”DB_CHARSET”, ”utf8”);

//define(”DB_COLLATE”, ””);


To prevent this happening when you copy text and want to paste it past as text or use ctrl+shift+v.
