I am having a problem with an RSS feed block changing characters. Its changing 'Mid-Summer Baseball Report – Seven - Tars Active in Collegiate Summer Leagues' into 'Mid-Summer Baseball Report ? Seven - Tars Active in Collegiate Summer Leagues'. The rss feed used in the feed block is located at ( and I attached a version that has the character issue.

    Has anyone had a chance to look into this?

    I downloaded your attachment, placed it on a web server, then created a Feed Block to point to the URL where it was residing. I'm not seeing the behavior you mentioned above.

    The source of the feed has a '-' in it so I'm not sure how this would have gotten changed to a '?'. Are you able to perform the steps I mentioned above and see this behavior still? If so, what version of Cascade Server are you currently running? I've tried on 6.0, 6.4, and 6.7.

    Thanks for that information. At this point, since I am unable to reproduce the problem, I'm guessing it may have been fixed since the current version you are running. Once the system has been upgraded to a supported release, please report back here if you continue to see this behavior and we'll be happy to look into it.
