    Special Characters Problem (Displaying ‘???’)

    Special characters are important to our web. We used them in different ways but If our webpage is not supporting Special characters or showing ???? instead of ‘ 中國哲學書電子化計劃 ‘ or ‘ בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם ‘ then it’s mean our controller / database is not properly working with these type of texts.

    Reason can be behind this condition –

    One reason – your database table / column collation is not correct like not UTF-8 or others those one support special chars.

    How to solve this issue – 

    You can use utf8_encode function which will convert your special characters to utf8 encoding data and then save it in your database and again use utf8_decode function to get special data back.

    Or just change your table or column collation type

    That`s it !!! I hope it will help someone. 🙂 [stextbox id=”info”]Your opinions, comments and suggestions are important to keep the page updated and interesting. [/stextbox]
