Fantastic app - but with the new 2.9.1 version my Chinese language feeds aren’t being recognised - presumably because parts of the feed URL is in Chinese as opposed to unicode? Feed used to work fine with 2.8. The feed in question is Yahoo News HK (http://hk.news.yahoo.com/rss/hongkong/rss.xml)
Ken, thanks a lot for the report. I’m going to look into this today. Will update you when I know more.
Hi Ken, just an update to say that I was able to reproduce the problem. To fix, please open makefulltextfeed.php and comment out the following line:
$permalink = $http->validateUrl($permalink);
The URL is already sanitized at this point but this call ends up applying PHP’s more aggressive cleaning which is what’s stripping these characters.
Wow that was a quick fix, thanks for that!
No problem. Thanks for reporting. This will be included in the next update too.
