    Hello,

    I have a problem with "Tweet this" plugin. When someone tweets a post, it adds "+" character to every blank. You can see it at http://www.extremista.com.ar

    How can I fix it? it's a great plugin but I am having that problem.

    Thanks,

    Jorge

    Don't worry about it, the + sign is automatically converted to a space by Twitter. The alternatives are using %20 for spaces or putting actual spaces in the URL, neither of which are ideal.

    However, if the plus signs are showing up in the actual tweets, we have a problem.

    Thanks for your answer richardxthripp. The problem is taht they are showing at the tweets, you can check it when you tweet any post from my site.

    They don't show up when I try to tweet your posts. However, I will add an option to use %20 as a spacer instead of + in the next version.

    Great! Thanks!
    When I use the link that is down the article it tweets without problems but with the "Tweet This" I see the "+" and I also saw that my users are having this problem.

    Do you mean the Write Tweet page in the admin forms or the Tweet This form on the Write Post and Write Page screens? I don't have any problem with spaces being converted into plus signs on either of those.

    You will see the error when you click on "Tweet" any of my articles. You can check it here http://www.extremista.com.ar/84441/videos-de-roxette-ponen-musica-en-ano-nuevo-desde-youtube/

    Oh, that's a different plugin from my plugin. The links at the bottom "Compartir en Twitter" and "Compartir en Facebook" are the ones inserted by my Tweet This plugin and they don't have the problem with + signs.
