Plugin doesn't show non-latin letters (8 posts)

    Hi there,

    Great plugin.

    Just one minor quirk I'm having with it. I have post titles with non-latin letters (ð, þ, æ etc.) and none of them show up in the FB Share Stats dashboard... that is to say, I see the stats for the posts but the titles are blank (and therefore difficult to see which post it is).

    Any suggestions?

    Best,
    A

    Thanks!
    If you can edit the file, you could try opening the facebook-share-statistics.php in a text editor and then re-saving it as UTF-8.

    Hi Carmine and thanks for the quick reply!

    Unfortunately, changing the encoding to UTF-8 didn't work. I tried it both in Notepad and an XML editor, but to no avail. Any other suggestions?

    Ok, try changing the line 106 with this:

    $sUrl = trim( $l->url );

    Thanks again Carmine, but that doesn't work either.

    One last attempt :)

    try the new development version:
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/facebook-share-statistics.zip

    or (meanwhile) the old 0.7 version:
    http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/facebook-share-statistics.0.7.zip

    if it still does not work means that the resolution requires more time...

    Excellent Carmine - the development version works! Thanks for helping me out with this one. I'll definitely keep the plugin on my watchlist.

    If I might offer a suggestion for future development: You should add a separate table (or add columns to the existing one) showing statistics from a given period. By default it might show statistics for the last week (or even last day). That way, users could both see the most recent activity and the total activity of readers.

    But yes - great plugin and thanks again for the help!
