Known Issues

Unfortunately there are some bugs in the current version of PingFire. If you're running into any of the issues below, please post the issue the appropriate thread on GetSatisfaction.

  • PingFire is not internationalized. Therefore special characters such as "é" or "ü" are stripped from all posts. (Fixed with version 1.0.2)
  • The NoScript add-on prevents PingFire from working.
