Error: Install Fails for Domain with 4x4 in URL (5 posts)

    I have come across a weird problem in that either through fantastico or the '5 minute install' my domain name 4x4-Trucks.info when installed 4x4 is replaced by http://www.4×4-trucks.info/news/ which stops the theme from working correctly as the images and stylesheet are no longer found. The functionality of WordPress continues to work just without a theme :(

    Is there a workaround for this other than manually changing all urls?

    TIA

    mmm ... domain should say this:

    '4×4-trucks.info/news/'

    Even the forum messes it up :(

    Please Just view source on that page as I cannot post the url :(

    That's caused by the wptexturize() function.

    See if this works for you.

    Unfortunately it did not work and all the url's are still encoded in strange way. Other than manually hacking every instance is there any way to fix this ... it seems like it should be reported as a bug as this cannot be right that writing 4x4 gets encoded.

    Maybe I should try this:

    Replaced $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] with $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'] and $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'] with $_SERVER['PHP_SELF'].

    If anyone knows where that line is though ???

    Thanks for your help Techwench!
