FAQ

How can I define my own substitutions?

Add this code to your theme’s functions.php file:

function my_cyr_to_lat_table($ctl_table) {
   $ctl_table['Ъ'] = 'U';
   $ctl_table['ъ'] = 'u';
   return $ctl_table;
}
add_filter('ctl_table', 'my_cyr_to_lat_table');

Reviews

Excellent

I use it on more websites in the last three years, and it never had a glitch with any version of WordPress, nor in combination with any theme or plugin I’ve used.
