Dealing with crazy chars in WordPress posts

Lots of  symbols appeared in almost all of our blog posts after updating to wp 4.5.1. The quickest, easiest way to fix this was:

  1. Export the site's database from phpmyadmin on the server
  2. Open the exported file and replaced all  the  Âs with nothing
  3. Import the file back in to phpmyadmin

The characters are gone from the posts.
