tamil page urls not working in WP 2.6 (7 posts)

    after upgrading to WP 2.6 I found pages (with pretty permalinks) having Tamil (Non-english unicode) characters in URL don't show up in the public view. I checked even the default themes. They could be seen only in the edit view. They show up if you have default WP URL.
    The temporary solution to change these Page slugs into some english characters.

    The post URLs are working fine.

    Hope this bug is fixed soon.

    Thanks

    Just go to settings->permalinks and click on save (making sure permalinks structure are set to what you want)

    yes, i have rebuilt the permalinks and the problem persists. for example,

    see

    http://blog.ravidreams.net/சோதனை/

    which gives a 404 not found error because the url is not in english

    whereas

    http://blog.ravidreams.net/ravishankar/

    has no problem.

    Please note that before the upgrade they were working fine and even now posts have no problems. only the pages have a problem.

    Thanks for the help.

    Not 100% sure - seems like you dont have language support - try this thread http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic.php?id=3165 if it helps

    Might also suggest checking your wp-config has
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    i had commented out define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8'); define('DB_COLLATE', ''); lines with // symbols. That helps in showing the whole site in tamil unicode utf-8. This was working fine with previous versions. now if i have to change this, i gotta go fix the whole database encodings :(
