    I'm getting weird html entities in posts when my feed content has accented character. For example à results in ã (&atilde, which is not even the correct entity) in my posts. How can i fix it?

    That isn't a problem with the plugin, it's coming from the feed itself. I use a plugin called "Search & Replace" to fix issues coming from feeds.

    No, it's a plugin problem because I tried 4-5 other plugins with the same purpose and they all didn't have this problem.

    Are you facing this with all your feed links, and every item in that feeds, or some of some?

    I have only 1 feed and yes it does the same thing for each item in that feed. Before uninstalling this plugin (I had to, meanwhile I'm using WPeMatico which is working good) I noticed it was actually not the same wrong characted every time, but each accented one had it's own wrong replace. Also I noticed it was not the standard weird characted u usally get when there is an encoding problem, i never seen accented chars replaced with those in case of encoding mismatch.

    copy your html encoded text, from your blog and paste it to one of these online HTML decoders to find the exact, decoded text.I think you have something other than ALFANUMMERC ASCII chars, in your text.
    Let me know if thats the case.
