encoding issues with some feeds

Postby thobu » 23 Sep 2015, 12:03

everything is set to utf8, the majority of feeds work but these 2 for instance garble special characters like German umlauts and others like —

http://newsfeed.zeit.de/all (German umlauts)
http://www.wareable.com/rss (here the — creates the issue)

Any idea what to do about it.

Thanks

well maybe not use it if it doesn't work on this feed

readability is a third party library, if it doesn't work for some feed that's p much it

right,
it just worked in another feeed reader, so I thought I'm doing something wrong settings-wise.

I've had better luck with encoding issues when using my cobbled-together plugin (https://github.com/itohsnap/ttrss_fullpost) than when using af_readability--even though they both rely on the same underlying Readability library.

Those two sites' full posts look fine in my install of TT-RSS; maybe give it a shot?
