    Madd, here you can find a development version of the plugin with some changes regarding the character encoding issue you reported. Can you please test it and let me know if it fixes the issue?

    Unfortunately the problem is not resolved. As you can see on my blog, the german umlauts are broken as before.

    I just tried on my test blog by adding "ë" to a post title and for me it displays properly, no weird characters at all. I'll look into it again.

    Alright, here's a second attempt to fix the issue. It's hard to tell if it makes any difference since -as I said above- I don't have any encoding issues.

    Please download this version and install it. Let me know what happens, alright?

    Hello Héctor
    Unfortunately this new version shows the same problem. I delete the old version, erased the table and cache of the plugin. But the umlauts are broken as before.

    Maybe it's a problem with my blog only. But the old version of your plugin has worked without umlaut-problems an I have not changed anything on my blog.

    It's not a problem with your blog only. I do have the same umlaut-problems since the last update (2.3.5) >> http://gedankenstrich.org.

    Strangly, it doesn't help to re-install an old version of the plugin.

    Thanks.

    No, the problem has been also reported by other users - so it's not your blog, don't worry.

    Does the problem persist if the Shorten Post Title feature is disabled (have the plugin show the entire title)?

    Even if I show the full title, there is the umlaut problem.

    Hello Héctor

    Are there any new ideas, where the origin of problem is?

    Hi Peer,

    No, unfortunately I haven't been able to figure out what the problem is since I can't replicate it on my test blog.

    Is there any chance to gain access to your blog so I can check what is causing the problem and fix it?
