Umbraco problems with displaying Special characters

Posted on September 15th, 2009 by Rich

Just a quick one this. I've been aware of this issue for a while but I've only just acted on it.

Basically with Umbraco v4.0.1 (and possibly others), if you enter a special character such as a degree symbol (°) in the RichTextEditor, the character would be replaced with the dreadful default square character when the page was published.

To get round this, open umbracoSettings.config in the config folder and replace:

Raw

with:

UTF8

You should now be able to save the special characters.
