RSS Feeds characters (version 4.2.8)
« on: January 23, 2017, 10:18:18 AM »
phpEnter Web Hosting
Hello again!

I noticed a problem in RSS Feeding: special characters are showed in a wrong way inside almost any Reader.

Here's an (extreme) example:

The text:
È così! Rubò 10$ al "Mövenländer" perché *bofrost gli renderà 50% in M&M's + 50% in £ o in € (forse?) Mah!

Will show that way in the RSS Readers:
È così! Rubò 10$ al "Mövenländer" perché *bofrost gli renderà 50% in M&M's + 50% in £ o in € (forse?) Mah!


There's a way to solve that?

Save rss and themes/../rss.php file in utf format without bom, and than clear cache..

Done (in fact, I always save in that format)... Nothing.

Just to be sure:

1) When, at first, you said "Remove this part of code from rss.php", you meant themes/../rss.php?

I ask you because in the other rss.php I didn't find the part of code I was supposed to remove, so I've removed it from themes directory's one.

2) I've cleared the cache using the feature under the "Cache" menu inside phpEnter... But the Cache module has always been turned off (when I turn it on, news main page never updates after inserting new stories): can this be a problem?

???????????? ? ? ? ?

Sorry, I'm not such an expert... I work with Dreamweaver and the page properties of every page I'm working on are the ones you can see in the image I attached: UTF-8 without BOM... What am I doing wrong???  :o

I've tried opening the file with TextWrangler and saving it (in UTF-8/noBOM format, obviously): nothing again... I really don't understand what (and if) I'm doing wrong... :(

Upload rss.php in the root of the website. rename rss-rename.php in rss.php and upload in themes directory

I've tried to remove that same piece of code also from rssid.php file (also the Title has the same problem), and there something worked...

Original Title:
È così: rubò 10$ al "Mövenländer"

RSS Title before removing the code:
Egrave; cos igrave;: rub ograve; 10$ al M ouml;venl auml;nder

RSS Title after removing the code:
È così: rubò 10$ al quot;Mövenländer quot;

That's a lot better! Now there's only that "quot;" instead of the quotation marks, to remove...

But for the news' text, after lot of trying and even uploading the files you've attached before, nothing happens, yet...
