    RSS and international characters problem

    Since some versions ago of HSTouch, my RSS feeds containing international characters became garbled. It had worked perfectly until then.
    Anyone have a solution to this? Have HS changed something that I might correct?
    See attached image for example.

    Appreciate any tips

    This was fixed in the latest release of the software. Are you running the latest versions of the clients and HSTouch plugin?

      Yes, I believe so:
      HSTouch Editor: 1.0.0.72
      HSTouch App for iPhone: 2.10
      HSTouch Server: 1.0.0.58
      HSTouch iPhone: 1.0.0.2

      When adding the RSS feed in HSTouch editor, I can see the same character errors when getting the data.
      The RSS feed works perfectly in any other RSS reader.

          This is equal in both the editor and the clients in my case. Also the RSS editor indicates the same errors - see attached image.
          Could this have something to do with localization settings in Windows?
          Running Windows 7 editor side.

          Also, the screendump contains the full URL to the current feed, should anyone else want to try

            I have the same problem using the latest version of the designer and the client. Tried to deploy to Android, Windows XP and iOS, but they all displays wrong encoding.

                I managed a partial solution by creating a PHP parsing script.
                The RSS encoding must be ISO-8859-1, and that was my problem.

                The problem still remains on my iPod Touch which is unable to run the latest clients. This used to work, and must be a change made in the plugin or designer.
                I guess HS won't be much of a help on that one, since the iPod can't update to the latest version.

                    Same problem here

                    Hi, I have been struggling a lot with this too!
                    The strange characters appears both in the Designer, in the Windows client and on my Android clients.
                    I'm running:
                    HSPRO 2.5.0.60
                    Designer: 1.0.73
                    Android: 1.0.35

                          I'm sorry this took so long, but here is my script that parses UTF8 to ISO:

                          PHP Code:
                          <?php
                            $curl_handle
                          =curl_init();
                            
                          curl_setopt$curl_handleCURLOPT_URL'http://www.yourweburl.com/yourfeed.rss' );
                            
                          curl_setopt$curl_handleCURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER1);
                            
                          $buffer curl_exec($curl_handle);
                            
                          curl_close($curl_handle);
                            
                          $charset "ISO 8859-1";
                            
                          $buffer str_replace("utf-8"$charset$buffer);
                            print 
                          utf8_decode($buffer);
                          ?>

                            Did anyone find a way to use international/accented characters in RSS feeds/HStouch without the use of a script?
                            Or is this another HStouch bug/unsupported feature?
