[resolved] unable to handle IDN (international domain names) (3 posts)

    The flattr plugin does not work with IDNs.

    running my blog on http://www.netzgespräche.de (which will be resolved to http://www.xn--netzgesprche-ocb.de)
    Whe i enter these values in general settings WordPress address (URL) and Site address (URL) the blog is working.

    when trying to auth the plugin, no oauth token is generated.
    Link looks like this:
    In plugin settings callback domain = http://www.xn--netzgesprche-ocb.de

    when i change the URL (and all the settings in WP) to a non-IDN (www.witzman.de) everything works fine and a token is generated.

    This could be a API related issue. I'll forward it to Flattr and see if they know anything about it...

    Sorry for taking so long.

    I'm unable to confirm the bug. I have no problem authenticating using the parsed name as callback.

    ie. exåmpel.flattr.local => http://xn--exmpel-jua.flattr.local

    that is, I use http://xn--exmpel-jua.flattr.loca when I register the app att flattr.com/apps and then use the same string as callback


    Hope it helps.
