message 1: by Aaron (new)

Aaron Gustafson (aarongustafson) | 2 comments My RSS feed is importing pretty horribly. I think there is a combination of issues at work:

1) Content encoding (the XML feed is UTF-8, but special characters are getting screwed up)
2) Carriage returns are all over the place.

My feed: https://www.aaron-gustafson.com/atom-...
Result: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show...

Cheers,

Aaron

Jerry (capvideo) | 1 comments If you need another example:

This appears to be the same problem Aaron is facing: utf-8 isn’t being interpreted correctly, even though utf-8 is the default encoding for XML documents.
