    What is going on here? I am using the plugin and the yoast SEO one and my links always come through from wordpress with iso 8859-1 characters.

    Do I need to specify a particular og tag to solve this?

    Here's a link to the fanpage which is manifesting my problem. Can anybody tell me what is going on here?

    http://www.facebook.com/pages/1980s-Music-Other-80s-Stuff/112977625383632

    As you can see, the link "http://www.iheart80s.co.uk/singles-1988/hollies-the-he-aint-heavy-hes-my-brother/" displays as "Hollies (The) – He Ain’t Heavy He’s My Brother" with the dash replaced by "ampersand hash 8211 semi-colon" and apostrophes with "ampersand hash 8217 semi-colon".

    So frustrating!

    Thanks

    Are you using the one on github?

    I tried with your title: https://www.facebook.com/456486034385221/posts/408306862559577

    No problem. I was talking about this one: https://github.com/facebook/wordpress/downloads

    I am having exactly the same problem.

    Makes the posts look unprofessional, any news on how to fix this?
