Was it because of the pipe character in his title? I tried encoding with
htmlentities() but no dice.
The plugin uses
loadHTMLFile() so I ran some tests with
file_get_contents() and cURL but the same thing happened. Each method works with other sites so it looks like the code is okay.
I have, however, been able to perform a GET request on the post using Requestable so I guess Manton's host is just blocking mine for some reason. 😢
