WP-Footnotes
Umlaute not working in wp-footnotes 4.2 (7 posts)

    Hello there,
    I noticed, that german Umlaute (ÄÖÜ,äöü) are not shown when hovering a footnote link. Instead I see ö ü and so on in the mouse over view.

    Also, if I end a footnote with three dots (...) they are shown as … in the mouse over view...

    The footnotes at the bottom of the posts are all ok, just the mouse over view is borked up.

    An example can be seen at

    http://instant-thinking.de/2010/08/26/home-network-redesign/

    in footnotes 3, 10 and some more.

    I use WordPress 3.0.1 and wp-footnotes 4.2.

    How is this behaviour fixable?

    Cheers from Germany

    So, in the post above I wanted to show the HTML-Entities representing the Umlaute and the three dots but wordpress.org converted them, correctly, to the actual, human readable characters.

    So, what I wanted to say was:

    Instead I see  ä ß and so on in the mouse over view.

    and

    they are shown as …

    Thanks again for your help, cheers

    Still not showing. Giving up and putting spaces between each character:

    & # 2 2 8 ;

    This stuff.

    Thank you again, cheers

    Hi Simon,
    oh great, thank you very much!

    Any ETA for the next release?

    In the meantime: Is it possible to checkout/clone/copy/download the trunk somewhere?

    Thank you again for your support, cheers

    der_dennis, WordPress's plugin system allows for the download of trunk snapshots. Go to the All Versions page (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-footnotes/download/) and download the "Development Version" which should contain the latest version of trunk.

    Thanks bgunnink, installation went flawless and the trunk snapshot fixed the problem with german Umlauts as advertised.

    In conclusion: Great support guys, thanks a lot!

    Cheers
