UTF8 Issues

Hey everyone, need a bit of a troubleshoot. After changing literally nothing on the forum, smart quotes are being changed into mojibake on very old threads on my site. Everything is set to UTF-8 in every page I can find. Itís showing up in the html header. Iím at a loss. Running vB 4.2.5 here. Do I just need to replace everything in the language manager? Does anyone have any quick fix? Iíve followed most guides I can Google to no avail.



Site is if you want to check. Just click any dated thread and youíll likely see it.

If the sql variables are set correctly, admincp --> diagnostics > system info

character_set_client latin1
character_set_connection latin1
character_set_database latin1
character_set_filesystem binary
character_set_results latin1
character_set_server latin1
character_set_system UTF-8

default_charset UTF-8 UTF-8

If you have a user.ini in your root folder of the site, verify its contents as well.
