Support » Plugin: FeedWordPress » [Plugin: FeedWordPress] Courrupted URLs with — (three hyphens) in the syndicated posts

  • This is a brilliant plugin. However, I am looking for a solution to the following issue. Its a major issue because if the links to the syndicated posts won’t work, the plugin is essentially of no use. I am picking this up from the plugin’s website……
    Links on syndicated posts
    Submitted by Joseph (not verified) on 30 March 2010 – 5:33pm.

    hi there, Thanks for developing the plugin. I have an issue, currently all the syndicated posts have links adopting from the title. So when i have titles like – “Firefox For Android Compiled, Demoed On Milestone – You Can Too!” The – in the title causes the link to be… . As you might notice right after milestone ther is three — dashes. This of course returns a server error page as the link doesnt work .

    Another example is this title — “””T-mobile HD2 Available Online, But not in Stores…. Yet!!””” The multiple dots in the title again result in a url such as this…. Again three dots cause the same proble.

    How do i resolve this issue that is have the url’s or slugs not to have stop words or punctuation marks, is it possible?

    Thank You for your time Joseph

    I posted this on the plugin’s site:
    Is this issue solved?

    Hello, I am facing the same issue with the latest version of the plugin. The syndicated posts that have a hyphen – in the title are appended with two more hyphens — resulting in the browser not understanding the link and therefore crash.

    Please advise at the earliest if anyone is able to find the cure for this.

    Regards, Ashish

    Any hint/solution will be helpful….

  • Hi Ashish:

    Does your FeedWordpress work fine otherwise? My .htaccess file keeps getting rewritten. Did you ever experience this? I’m trying to solve it.
