Support » Plugin: Amazon Associates Link Builder » Messes With Content Character Encoding

  • Under some site configurations this plugin messes up the character encoding of the main content area. The bug affects the frontend of sites only and then only the main content area i.e not the sidebars, menus, widgets etc…

    Seriously, guys, invest some time and money into this plugin to fix its faults or else remove the plugin from the WordPress plugin directory. For a company worth billions, this plugin should be the best example of great coding in a WordPress plugin found anywhere on or off the web. As it is, this plugin is pathetic.

  • Lee, thanks for reporting – my site got encoding messed up by this plugin. Removing it fixed all issues (basically, the main content of a post seemed to be in “latin1”, while the rest of the site is in “utf8”, so accents appeared as garbled text — once the plugin has been removed, everything is back to utf8 and appearing correctly).

    shame on amazon – i thought they were some kind of advanced tech company…
