Seem fine when composing, transformed when previewed or posted. iPhone 6 Plus, iOS 11, Safari.
Yea they show up correctly when editing before you submit/preview. And then if you edit the post with the messed up characters, they get even worse.
FWIW - iPhone 7 Plus, ios 11, Chrome
The forum move may have had a change in PHP versions, leading to a default character encoding change that is no longer the same as the one used by the rest of the forum software and/or database.
Os 11 probably sends a pretty apostrophe, not a plain ASCII one.

Yah certainly an encoding issue of some sort. I wasnât sure if was due to a change in iOS or a change in the forum, since they happened at the same time, but I donât remember having any issues before upgrading iOS so that was my gut feeling.
BTW, my old posts weren't created with an iPhone or with anything using iOS, so I am skeptical those are the source of the problem. On the other hand, the apostrophe in the first sentence of this paragraph looks OK, so it can't just be the current setup of the forum.

Edit: I did notice someone who used apostrophes in their own text successfully (think it was in the NFL sub-rants Trump 100 days thread) had pasted a quote from somewhere that had the gobbledygook apostrophes in it, so I'm guessing it has to do with unrecognized source code as well. Just guessing, though.

Also, godaddy email servers seemingly crashed today as my Work and business emails donât work. Perhaps we are getting super hacked again....
