Clean WordPress


This plugin is heavily based on the "German Permalinks" plugin from Scott Hanson with modifications form Michael Renzmann and Rainer Gerhards. Rainer Gerhards has added the capability to clean the content to HTML entities (e.g. > ü) and I have added more characters and limited the plugin-function only for the WordPress title, excerpt, content and comments. The plugin works with the default WordPress editor (tested with WordPress 2.8+) or Dean’s FCKEditor for WordPress.

Note: If you miss some conversions, drop me a note with details (see mail-adress in readme.txt)
