Support » Plugin: Front-end Editor » [Plugin: Front-end Editor] "One paragrpaph at a time" brings garbage characters.

  • When I choose “Edit one paragraph at a time”, I see garbage characters instead of the text of my posts and pages. When I choose to edit the whole text, everything is OK. I tried WP 3.1.2 and WP 3.0, with WYSIWYG and without, in different themes: Thematic, Starkers, Twenty-ten, and in Opera, Firefox and Chrome – the same problem everywhere.
    img 1 – “Edit one paragraph at a time, instead of an entire post” – not checked.
    img 2 – “Edit one paragraph at a time, instead of an entire post” – checked. The text is in Russian.

    The problem is only with the text of posts and pages.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Please paste the actual text, so I can test it myself.

    Also, what encoding are you using? WP-Admin -> Settings -> Reading -> “Encoding for pages and feeds”

    It’s ordinary UTF-8.

    “Текст использует математический горизонт, что не имеет аналогов в англо-саксонской правовой системе. Как легко получить из самых общих соображений, фабула даёт бо’льшую проекцию на оси, чем 238 изотоп урана, как и реверансы в сторону ранних “роллингов”. Апостериори, излучение ускоряет тон-полутоновый художественный талант, таким образом, второй комплекс движущих сил получил разработку в трудах А.Берталанфи и Ш.Бюлера…”

    Hm… it works just fine for me, using WP 3.1.2, the twentyten theme and paragraph editing on.

    One more thing to check would be the database tables collation and charset. Make sure you have something like this in your wp-config.php:

    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');

    Then check the tables themselves using phpMyAdmin.

    Well, wp-config is as yours, the same settings.

    All the tables in phpMyAdmin are with utf8_general_ci, except one, but I am not sure if it is actually a table and if it is crucial. Could you tell me? And can I change it?

    I had some little experience of changing the collation in tables. But this one… Is this line changeable at all? It looks like a summarizing information.

    No, nevermind, I realized you said it works ok when paragraph editing isn’t enabled, so it’s probably not a db issue.

    I’m thinking it might have something to do with PHP’s DOM extension. I would have to take a look for myself to see what’s causing it.

    For this, I would need admin access (to be able to edit the plugin file). If you can grant me that access, my email is mail @

    I have managed to change that line with the collation in the database. Now I am going to check the effect of it… I will write again.

    No effect, unfortunately! Yes, sure, I will send you whatever you need in a couple of minutes. The problem is, the blog is installed in Russian… I encourage you to change the interface of the administration panel into English, if it is of any help.
