    I've been messing with the Caff Content plugin (v2.3.149) and all of the posts have had ASCII characters and miscellaneous junk in them, here's an example:

    [​IMG]

    Anyone have any idea what might be causing this? I have seen others use it succesfully, but not sure what I'm doing wrong. Hopefully this hasn't already been asked here - I looked around for a bit but didn't see any similar questions.

    Edit: I encountered this problem when pulling from Yahoo Answers, as well as Articles.

    my guess is your using the translate template and not the default. Sometimes its does that when it translates some articles.

    That was the first thing I checked - I am using the default template, so I can't really figure out what the problem is here.

    That's actually the link I used, but in WP it says I'm using 2.3.149. Who knows. And yeah, I left the form boxes empty as instructed.

    It looks like I was using [b_rewrite_post] in the template and that is what was causing it. The posts are totally messing up my main wordpress page now, probably due to the div float left tag used for the image - Has anyone figured out how to still float the image left but not effect the rest of the WP theme?

    Are you using a version of WP before 2.1?

    The most recent version of CC is 3.37.

    3.37 is the latest CC version.

    I get that messed up code on the blogs that I have used the uniquefier plugin on.

    Not long ago, I recall reading about an update to CC that took care of a bug associated with a change made by the article site it pulls from. Could be that.

    That was just a fix with the title...3.37 took care of that.

    I figured this out.

    I do have another question though. When you schedule this to post questions (Yahoo Answers) in the future, and then they are posted, why aren't there any comments? The only time comments show up for me is when I have it post them from the past, ie dates that have already occurred, if that makes any sense.
