[resolved] Foreign characters not working (6 posts)

    Hi, just wondering if you had any success or ideas in finding a solution for non-Latin characters in the link text? (Like äöüéß and so on).

    I need to use such characters in mailto links on my site, but currently I can't when I'm using this plugin - they get messed up. :(

    After trying and testing I still cannot manage to find a solution.
    Suggestions are welcome.

    Can't the plugin just ignore the foreign characters and not encode them, but leave them as they are?

    I'm certainly not an expert on this topic. But I found an online encoder at http://www.webutils.pl/ROTencode which just ignores the foreign characters and only changes the Latin characters.

    For what it's worth, I recently wrote to the developer of the PHPEnkoder plugin, because his plugin also did not encode foreign characters correctly. He investigated and found a solution, and now his works correctly with all such characters.

    I think his plugin might be using a different method of encoding though? But maybe it's still helpful to find out how he fixed it?

    Same issue when using escape/unescape.

    In the eeb-class you could use
    instead of
    which also works with utf-8.
