I am trying to port a WP site from GoDaddy to Siteground.  It appears that the SG Migrator is doing good work, that all the records are transferred.

The issue is that WPTexturize when the post was written, inserted emdash for -- and rsquo (curly quote) for a regular apostrophe, etc.  Both of these characters are among the ones that cause the post to be truncated on transfer to SG.  There are likely a lot of other similar issues.

I am open to all sorts of fixes, Better Search Replace plugin, https://bettersearchreplace.com/ or MySQL queries, a PHP function, whatever.

I would want to contractor to do the transfer to SG, interactively, until it's right.

Probably, it would be necessary to use a database comparison tool to verify, or perhaps, even do the transfer.

This is not a data entry or beginner job.
