? All Over My Site

Recommended Posts

Ok, i finally got my hosting activated, starting throwing my site on through ftp, except now i have "?" all over. It is in my template files somewhere as far as i can tell because Subsilver does not have these, yet my template does.

 

See for yourself at http://www.basherplanet.com

look under the stats, and in the forum topics, etc.

 

any ideas where to look for this problem?

I see that on a lot of ebay listings. Don't know what they are from though.

It could be an out of date php on that webserver, or the code might just be messed. They might of forgotten a tag or just misplaced that. I'm sure if you look hard enough you can find where those errors are located and correct it.

i looked in all my template files and could not find a "?" anywhere in any code that should not be there

 

Its just a fresh install of phpbb with a couple mods and a template, so i could setup an ftp account if someone would like to download the files and have a look to try and help a guy out

 

EDIT: actually, its my bedtime :lol: (gotta work tomorow :( ) so i don't really have time to set up an ftp account for public access to my site (kinda a stupid idea in the first place now that i think of it) so ill do the next best thing....post my site HERE for download in a zip file and hopefully someone gets back to me either tonight or tomorow morning

 

if the link doesn't work, copy and paste http://www.basherplanet.com/BasherPlanet.zip into your browser (something to do with OCC's redirection doesn't seem to like my link :S)

They must be unkown characters in IE. Because in Firefox they aren't ? they are liked diamond boxes.

Yeah, I saw the diamond boxes on Opera. I thought maybe they were there on purpose.

It's character encoding.

 

What encoding fo you have on your site?

 

Should be defined like this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

 

If you don't specify what encoding to use, the browser willl go with it's default... Windows-1257, UTF-8, iso-8859-1, or whatever...

Ok, that code you just gave me didn't work (unless im putting it in the wrong files)

 

I tried putting them into the template files first, didn't work, so i tried putting it in the .php files directly, but it just gave me more errors, so i fixed that yet i still have the ? everywhere :S
