i15d stands for…


i18n stands for…


I don’t understand the purpose of this plugin… Could you explain it a little further?

WordPress is by default really restrictive on what characters you can use inside your permalinks.
i15d WP changes the WordPress behavior to be less restrictive with the characters, so that you can
start using more characters (i.e. non-ASCII characters) on your permalinks without being truncated or deleted.

Why does WordPress make such a character restriction on permalinks?

For just one simple reason: Characters Encodings (specially multi-byte character encodings).
So, even if the permalinks are similar but with different encoding, WordPress won’t be able to process them equally and will, therefore, issue a 404 Not Found HTTP Error.

Does this plugin fix this issue?

Unfortunately… NO.
Fixing the encodings issue is a really complicated and time-consuming task but we will consider this issue
in further versions.

Why did you develop this plugin?

This plugin was originally a custom software made for some webmasters of IDN
Blogs and since maybe someone else might find it useful, I released this little work to the public 😛.
