    Hi,

    we found out, that the plug-in writes code with unescaped ampersands in URLs which break the RSS feed of the page then.

    Quick fix?

    I try to resolve this problem. Do you have an rss example error?
    With my rss all it's okey => http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi?url=www.bjtliveset.com%2Ffeed%2F

    There are some strange problem. I have tested the rss code and in my website are all good.
    I want try to solve your problem. Do you have use the shortcode in excerpt section ? the problem is not the url but that the rss engine put iframe tag outside the description section. This is really strange!

    Hi BJT,

    I don't know what you exactly mean with "excerpt section". We just post the entries and WP creates the excerpts.

    As far as I can see, the Ampersands are partly escaped, while some parameters are not:

    http://www.mixcloud.com/widget/iframe/?feed=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mixcloud.com%2FLeFtOoO%2Fshow540-jungle-by-night-x-gaslampkiller-premiere-new-james-blake-cid-rim%2F&embed_uuid=4743a4fe-c254-4cb4-a49e-bf2d6d1e8d94&stylecolor=#fffff&embed_type=widget_standard

    (btw: On our sample page here, the Playlist option doesn't seem to work too.)

    We used "Widget type: HTML5" and "Display playlist of the mixcloud" in the configuration.

    Switching the Playlist option off, doesn't resolve the problem.
    Switching both off, the playlist option and the HTML5 option neither :(

    Still unescaped Ampersands in
    &stylecolor=#fffff&embed_type=widget_standard
