My wordpress site appears normal in dashboard but has non-readable characters in browser.

My wp website appears normal when logged into Dashboard but in browser appears as illegible characters.


I have updated theme and plugins and deactivated plugins one-by-one to no avail. 

Any help is appreciated. 



Hey @10Degreesabove,


Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy


You mentioned updating the existing theme, but have you tried resetting this to a default theme like TwentyTen? If you're using W3-Total-Cache, I've seen a patch fix mentioned for this same type of error on the WordPress Forums that might also help. 


Let us know if you manage to get this worked out.

Thanks CG. 


It looks exactly like the problem I am experiencing but I am not experienced enough to apply the solution. 


I appreciate your response & time.
