Adding special characters in a WordPress post or page is actually very simple, since this is a built-in feature found in the Visual editor, so you won’t need to enable an extra setting or install a new plugin.

For those of you that don’t like using the Visual editor, or have it disabled completely, don’t worry, I got you covered too.

So, for example, if you want to add the copyright sign, you’ll have to type ©.
