The copyright symbol in my footer looks like this ©
Any ideas?

It might be your character set.

A little more information would be helpful.

What is the URL of your site?
What theme are you using?
What is your character set?

You may want to try changing the value in your control panel from © to & copy;

NOTE: remove the space between & and c.

The website is in my profile.
And the theme is using <{$xoops_footer}>, which is where the symbol is messed up.

OK, the problem appears to be that your hosting provider has UTF-8 set as the default character set instead of ISO-8859-1.

You can get around this by editing theme.html.

Simply change
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=<{$xoops_charset}>" />

To
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />


After you make your changes, delete the contents of the templates_c/ directory so your changes will take effect.

Hope this helps.

No, that did not work.
I put © in the footer by itself, and it works.

Thanks

copy; = ©

You normally "may not" use © directly in html instead it's recommended you use
copy;
You can read about it here.

btw the space between & and copy; isn't normally there, but the forums bb code won't let me write it as it should be;)

None of these suggestions worked.
Thanks for trying.

Just to clarify... I can use & copy; in the footer and it works. However, the © symbol does not work from the generated html when using <{$xoops_footer}>.
The default XOOPS footer does use & copy;

I know about the spacing, I just dont know how to show it on this forum.
If you take a look at my site now you can see two copyright symbols. The one that works is code from my theme.html the one that does not is coming from footer.php found in the XOOPS root directory.

Let me ask this...What is the purpose of including the XOOPS footer.php other than showing the "powered by xoops" in the footer? The content in footer.php looks important, but then I really wouldn't know.
