There's a specific folder with some pages in which I cannot successfully change the diamonds to the correct symbols. It's the same website, and the connection file has the same code as above. The DB is set to utf-general-ci, so are all the columns and so is the php file with the meta tag set to <meta charset="UTF-8">. I do a view source and it's correct, but the diamonds keeps displaying, until I change my browser to view as Western. What could I be missing? The page has a login so I can't send you the link for you to view. Is there a php option to force it? I saw something about ICONV but not sure how to implement yet.
