Using accented characters in permalink URLs (3 posts)

    I'd like to bring this back up...
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/foreign-accent-characters-in-permalinks?replies=6

    as of WP 3.4.1 I still cannot rewrite the permalink using accented characters.

    I don't think we're hurting our search results in Google by doing this... the subject of my search still gets returned when search with or without accented characters.

    thanks!

    very helpful David thanks...

    now I've just got to figure out how to modify that snippet to give me a more complete accented character equivalent library.

    this looks like a pretty complete one... http://myshadowself.com/coding/php-function-to-convert-accented-characters-to-their-non-accented-equivalant/

    we are in need of occasional accents in names ranging from greek to french, to dutch etc... the filter is going to have to be pretty complete while hopefully not sacrificing much performance.
