Simple Twitter Feed
[resolved] Mistakes character code for hashtag (4 posts)

    Hi,
    in tweets, some punctuation gets converted into a character code, for example &#39 for an apostrophe. The plugin doesn't recognize it, and it thinks it is an ampersand followed by the hashtag #39. Any way to fix this/am I doing to something wrong? The feed is embedded in a php block with

    echo do_shortcode('[twitter-feed username="RUTorch" num="15"]');

    Any help would be much appreciated. Other than that, I really like the plugin; it's an extremely simple way to embed a twitter feed for a client who isn't a programmer and may want to edit it in the future.
    Thanks!

    At the moment it simply just looks for the '#' and converts it to a hash tag. I will fix this asap, I've got a couple of other fixes in the queue but it's slow going at the moment (home renovations taking up most of my time these days).

    Setting the option decode="yes" fixed it :)
