  • Hi

    Same problem here…
    Anybody any idear?

    Thanks, Ariane

    Have had the same issue. It will load once, then I get the “a” on subsequent page loads.

    Is there anything more specific you guys can tell me about how you’re setting up your Twitter feeds? Anything that could lead me to duplicate the issue? Obviously if all three of you are getting the same thing, there’s something to it. But I’m not quite sure how you guys are getting this.

    I have the same issue! I noticed it was a tweet with a ‘ in the text, which messes up your transient cache (serialized array) I guess!

    Example serialized array which gives an error from the option ‘_transient_tweeple_81’;

    Hmm, it could also be a non-unicode character, which is also in one of the tweets…

    Thanks! I’ll get this in the next update on repository.

    I Still have the same issue. My feed is based on a Brazilian Guy, who speaks portuguese, so it has many different characters. If i select “Yes” on the “UTF-8 Text Encoding”, my feed appears, but with a lot of wrong characters. If I do choose “No”, the feed doesn`t shows up, and instead I get an “a” letter.

    My plugin is in the Version 0.9.1 , and WordPress on 3.9.

    Any suggestion?

    This topic is very challenging to me because I do not speak any languages other than English, and so I’ve been trying to learn about how encoding works with different characters of different languages.

    Would it be possible for you to provide more specific feedback? Maybe an example of the specific Twitter account? And with UTF-8 encoding on, examples of tweets with characters that do not display correctly?

    Plugin Author Jason


    I was just playing with a couple of Portuguese Twitter accounts, and with UTF-8 encoding turned off, everything is working. So, it would be nice to find out specifically what characters cause this break to happen.

    Hi Jason

    The account i`m trying to replicate is

    And this is how the tweets appears on the website (inside the parenthesis I`ll put the original text that should appear)

    👆👆👆👍 Vitória!!!! Bomdemais… Vice liderança do campeonato. Corrida da 1a a ultima volta disputando…

    (UHuhhuHUHu##Poleeeeee para etapa de Curitiba de brdemarcas !!! Carro perfeito da equipe rzmotorsport… )

    From what I see, all the characters with some kind of accents are displaying with problems. At the first moment they are allgood, but on a second load of the page, all the tweets turn on single “a” character.

    Thanks for your help,

    Plugin Author Jason


    All right, so I think I’ve got it figured out. Can you please try it out and let me know?


    1) Update to Tweeple 0.9.2.
    2) Go back to the feed and make sure UTF8 Encoding is turned ON.
    3) Clear your Feed’s cache under Manage Feeds (although re-saving the options for your feed would have done this automatically)

    Thank you very much Jason! It`s working like a charm =)
