If you deleted the thread it is normal that it won''t work as the posts for that thread will be gone. But it will work on all the other posts at your forum.

One question: will this avoid characters breaking again? I mean, if it's something is causing all new posts to break, will this just fix the characters or is there any bug-fix inside the plugin?

Thanks.
