hello there,

I have a Wordpress blog with a cool carousel. However, weird symbols keep coming up on it... the titles

my site is MMA Jump (http://mmajump.com)

check out in the carousel UFC 117 Recap 'N' weird characters.

how do i fix that... where is that even coming from?

Can you give us a screenshot of the strange characters because I don't see it?

The "..." (horizontal ellipsis), which is a character entity and not three periods, was probably put in by a web editor. This happens when a non-standard web editor is used. I see in source code:

<h1>UFC 117 Recap ‘N...</h1>

Try removing the "..." and putting in those using the period key or use the character entity: "&# 8230 ;" or "& hellip ;" (remove spaces)

I think wordpress does that automatically...

because the full title is:

UFC 117 Recap ‘N’ Reactions

but it shrinks it...

It might shrink it because the container is too narrow? Don't use WordPress, but maybe you can recode the style for that area in the Dashboard.
