#10713 new defect (bug)

Output encoding not set in fetch_feed

Severity: normal Version: 2.8.4
Component: Feeds Keywords: has-patch dev-feedback

If using WP Super Cache (or a similar plugin) on a blog with a non-UTF-8 charset that has an RSS widget then the charset is incorrectly changed to UTF-8 by SimplePie.

The fix is to explictly set the encoding in fetch_feed before SimplePie sends any headers (which it only does if WP Super Cache is being used, since it checks if any headers have already been sent).

*** live/wp-includes/feed.php      2009-05-25 11:13:48.000000000 +0200
--- dev/wp-includes/feed.php       2009-09-01 17:40:19.000000000 +0200
*** 552,557 ****
--- 552,558 ----
        $feed->set_cache_duration(apply_filters('wp_feed_cache_transient_lifetime', 43200));
+       $feed->set_output_encoding(get_option('blog_charset'));
        if ( $feed->error() )

I've put this as low priority since I guess most blogs use UTF-8 and don't use WP Super Cache.
