Discourse retrieve new topics from rss with Invalid characters

Hi guys,

Any idea why this happens ?


Thanks! :smile:

That looks like either the browser missing a font or more likely a character encoding issue.

AFAIK Discourse uses UTF-8 but maybe there’s a bug in the oneboxer / rss code?

Maybe :confounded: :frowning:

Sure @techapj can have a peek, can you provide the actual URL?

Sure! :grinning:

Hmmm, everything looked to be UTF-8 from what I saw

I can understand the llegará -> llegar?? as the single 2 byte character (a acute) is being interpreted as 2 single byte characters

But ??Unravel?? is a problem with <strong> tags which I don’t understand what that could be about at all Oddly, other strong tags in the post don’t cause the problem. Maybe it was in “curly quotes”?

Maybe the WordPress plugun?

The a acute displays OK here when pasted in.

Let us know if there are any issues left here!

Seems like OP’s Discourse is down :expressionless:
