[resolved] Some charactors get converted to HTML code in Twitter feed (5 posts)

    We've found that some characters in the post title are converted to code in the twitter message. For example:

    - = & # 8 2 1 1;
    ' = & # 8 2 1 7;

    (I've split the code up so it actually displays)

    The apostrophe is just the basic charactor, not a curly quote. Any advise on how to sort this much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Tom

    Ok, I'm looking at this now and can't recreate the issue. If the Twitter title has these characters in, they appear in Twitter okay. Can you provide an example?

    Hi Dartiss

    The issue appears if the character is in a post title... when the twitter box appears the replacement to the code has already been made. I'm afraid I don't have a sample of this functionality as I had to apply a hack to the site to replace the characters before it reached the plugin.

    Cheers

    Tom
