Permalinks fail with some intenational chars (WP1.5) (3 posts)

    Though using accented chars on the post title works ok, using certain characters breaks my permalinks. For example, titling a post "¿Bug en WordPress?" (note the first "inverse" question mark, used in spanish) makes the permalink become:


    That makes the permalink fail showing a "404 Page not found" error. I'm using UTF-8, by the way.

    Any workaround for this?

    You could change the post-slug to something more friendly ...

    URIs (and thus URLs) are not really friendly to international characters, due to their specification. IRIs go a large way to solve this problem, but are very far from mainstream.

    I'd go with starritt's solution for now.
