Example from Rich Text Field HTML

This is a Rich Text field within a matrix, it's output in the template like this: {{ block.text }}

If I pass the "|raw" filter I get the same.

If you notice, the Rich Text Field has a   before the closing </p>, which isn't output in the markup, instead I get this strange character.

I had a similar thing with hacksaw recently bringing up this character here: https://github.com/ehousestudio/craft_hacksaw/issues/16

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

  • Could you copy and paste the strange character into the bottom field on this page and update your post with the results: freeformatter.com/string-utilities.html Oct 5 '16 at 14:06
  • This happens to me in my mamp environment as well. But not on my live server. I guess it's more of an server encoding problem (UTF8 vs. something else).

  • @joe Sounds like an environment issue then, could you maybe give us some more info on your web server setup? Oct 5 '16 at 15:45

I did contact Craft about this near the time this question was posted, they were not sure why it was occuring.

I found that this issue was environment specific, it was specifically happening locally on MAMP4, with 5.6.* using NGINX.

I was unable to find the cause of the issue, but, in the end it was not happening on server environments so I decided to give up.
