  • Hello, I had a problem with my blog. I use russian characters in author names, so urls to authors page contain this characters.
    Example of URL:
    To such link WP output me 404 page, not this current blog – I already resolve problem. About what I want report to all WP community – may be somebody have the same problems.
    I begin to reverse engineering the problem and found, that in file: wp-includes/query.php on line 1977(for 2.9.2 version):
    > $q[‘author_name’] = sanitize_title($q[‘author_name’]);
    Function ‘sanitize_title’ changing my utf-8 characters to symbols with % hex codes and such author_name try to find in database in nice names. Obviously it can’t find there anything and outputs me 404 page. I resolved this problem by changing function ‘sanitize_title’ to ‘sanitize_user’, the line after my changes looks like:
    > $q[‘author_name’] = sanitize_user($q[‘author_name’]);

    I think that this is a bug, because WP isn’t work normally in that case. Don’t know if I have resolved it securely, so please help me to check and finish with this bug. And than I think we need to update sources of WP.

    p.s I tested this problem on WP 3.0 – there it is present too.
