Display issues of special characters in News application


Hi there

Since a few days ago, some characters in my News application don’t show properly (accents, long hyphens, apostrophes, quotation marks, etc.).

It seems the other apps don’t have the same problem, but I noticed my name had the same issue in the Nextcloud desktop client (v. 2.5.2).


Does anyone else have the same issue? Is it something that should be reported to Nextcloud? (I coudln’t find a bug report related to it on GitHub.)


Hi @stragu

Your issue seems to be a strange issue. Just on the News application and your desktop application…

Could you test with another web navigator ?
I cannot reproduce the bug on my system.

Thanks for your response,
Best regards.


Hi @Aisyk
Thanks for the reply. I just tested it on my personal computer (Ubuntu 18.04) with Firefox and Chromium and I have the same issue in both (no extensions in Chromium).
I also tested on a Windows computer with Firefox and Edge at work, and the issue is the same, with articles coming from different RSS sources. I don’t have this issue with any other website, so this seems to confirm that the issue is on Indie Cloud’s side somehow…

Any thoughts?


Thanks for your feedback ! We’ll investigate :wink:
