Does not work with RSS feed with the '&' character in the URL

Reported by Tyler | February 13th, 2009 @ 03:44 AM

Wp-o-matic does not with RSS feed with '&' character in the URL, this is because wp-o-matic convert the '&' to '&' when sending the URL to the feed web server.

For example,


get convert to:


This converted url will be rejected by the server because the '&' is not part the URI specification.

Encoding '&' to '&' is only for displaying in HTML (HTML encoding)

'&' is a valid entity in URI specification and should not be further encoded when sending to server to fetch the feed.
