How Do You Remove Symbols From Webflow?

Have you ever encountered unwanted symbols on your Webflow website and wondered how to remove them? Symbols can appear as a result of various reasons, such as incorrect HTML coding, font compatibility issues, or even copy-pasting content from external sources. In this tutorial, we will explore different methods to remove symbols from your Webflow site and ensure a clean and professional appearance.

Method 1: Review and Edit HTML Code

If you notice symbols appearing in specific sections or elements of your Webflow site, it’s essential to review the corresponding HTML code. Open the affected page in the Webflow Designer and navigate to the element causing the issue.

Step 1:

Select the element by clicking on it.

Step 2:

Inspect the HTML code associated with that element by clicking on the “Settings” tab in the right sidebar and selecting “Custom Code.”

Step 3:

Underline any suspicious or unfamiliar characters or symbols within the code. These are likely causing the issue.

Step 4:

Edit or remove the symbols. Be cautious while making changes to avoid breaking any functionality of your website.

Method 2: Check Font Compatibility

Sometimes, symbols can occur due to font compatibility issues. Certain fonts may not support specific characters, resulting in symbols being displayed instead. Follow these steps to address this problem:

Step 1:

Navigate to the section where you are experiencing symbol-related issues.

Step 2:

  1. Make a note of the font currently being used for that section.

  2. Create a backup of the current font by duplicating it or selecting an alternative font.

Step 3:

Publish your site and refresh it to see if the symbols have disappeared. If they have, it indicates that the issue was caused by font compatibility. If not, proceed to the next method.

Method 3: Remove Symbols from External Content

If you have copied and pasted content from external sources (such as Word documents or PDFs) into your Webflow site, symbols may appear due to formatting inconsistencies. Follow these steps to remove symbols from external content:

Step 1:

Select the text containing symbols.

Step 2:

  • Paste the text into a plain text editor like Notepad or Sublime Text.

  • Select all the text in the plain text editor and copy it again.

Step 3:

Paste this cleaned version of the text back into your Webflow site, replacing the previous content. This will remove any hidden formatting or symbols that were causing issues.

In Conclusion

In this tutorial, we explored different methods to remove symbols from your Webflow site. By reviewing and editing HTML code, checking font compatibility, and removing symbols from external content, you can ensure a clean and professional appearance for your website. Remember to regularly review and maintain your site to prevent symbol-related issues in the future.

Implement these methods and say goodbye to unwanted symbols on your Webflow site!
