FAQ About the Curator's Code WordPress Plugin
Some WordPress blogs don't automatically support the use of unicode symbols. We have provided a white or black image option, so that you can display an image instead of a unicode character.
A second option is to change the character set in your wp-config.php file. Instructions can be found here. We claim no responsibility if you choose to implement this process, and provide no support/warranties/etc.
FAQ About the Curator's Code Itself
These characters are just a proposed way of standardizing attribution, and they help spread the broader message of The Curator's Code – but they're not the only way. If you're having technical difficulties, or are confused by them, or just plain don't like them, you can and should just use the standard "via" and "HT" options for direct and indirect attribution of discovery, respectively. The goal here is not to mandate how to attribute, but to encourage to attribute.
Part of what The Curator’s Code aspires to do is evolve our thinking about the levels of attribution.
“Via” (ᔥ) tends to denote a direct repost — something you found elsewhere and shared with your audience with little modification or elaboration.
“HT” or "Hat Tip" (↬) tends to stand for indirect discovery — something for which you got the idea at your source, but modified or elaborated on significantly when sharing with your audience.
