[Plugin: Tweet This] Just ran across a show stopper for this plugin

  • When I added the UTF-8 characters #中国 for (#china) I received the following error when tweet submitted: “Invalid Unicode value in one or more parameters”.

    I’ve tested Chinese characters in Tweet This and they worked fine for me. Try using the characters without the # hashtag. This may be an issue with the hashtag screening.

    Richard:

    Try adding the characters #中国 in either the WEB Tweet Text-box or in the default Auto Tweet Text-box for the Automatic Tweeting section; you will see what I am talking about.

    Thanks,

    Yes, I see it now… it works fine on the Write Tweet page, except the text isn’t displayed properly in the preview. But it fails everywhere else.

    I will try to get a bugfix out around Jan. 6. I wouldn’t call this a show-stopper though, since 90% of Tweet This users don’t use Chinese characters and this was the first time I encountered or even heard of this bug. There were problems with Unicode characters in old Tweet This versions, but I thought I had fixed them all.

    In the mean time, you can use WP to Twitter or Twitter Tools, or if you know PHP, search through tweet-this.php and /lib/tt-options.php, patch the files, and send me the bugfix… I love when people do that.

    Yes, what I meant by “show stopper” was that this error actually causes a termination of the running code. But will be the first to stick with this plug-in; since it offers many other great features.

    I understand. It’s partly a Twitter issue since Twitter should not give up on malformed Unicode characters so easily.
