If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I’m trying to use an arrow (“rarr”;) character in links where i cannot use the More tag (be consistent with the theme’s more tag).
but each time i get a question mark instead of an arrow. I suppose it has nothing to do with my UTF-8 settings because the More tag in the theme works well and shows the “rarr”; arrow.
Any idea what can cause this? some custom characters work, others don’t.
Hi Bill G,
Are you putting an ampersand before the “rarr”? So it would be this:
As an alternative you can use the custom character icon on WordPress’ visual editor. Click here for reference if you’re not sure of what icon I’m referring to – http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/
