German Slugs

German Slugs properly transliterates umlauts and the letter ß appearing in titles for slugs (i.e. for pretty permalinks).

one of the standard plugins I use

Sollte in der deutschen Version von WP vorinstalliert sein

Solange dies nicht geschieht, ist German Slugs („Deutsche Adreßabschnitte“) erste Wahl für jene, denen es nicht egal ist, ob ihr Beitragstitel nach der Umwandlung in einen Adreßabschnitt noch zu lesen ist.

Das Plugin kann bei Bedarf leicht um weitere Transliterationen ergänzt werden. Der Aufbau des Plugins ist so einfach, daß es schwer ist, dabei Fehler zu machen. Um weitere Buchstaben korrekt zu ersetzen, braucht in der Datei lib.php nur jeweils eine Zeile hinzugefügt zu werden.

Weitere von WordPress nicht richtig umgewandelte Buchstaben sind beispielsweise Åå und €. Die einzufügenden Zeilen lauten in diesem Fall:

$title = str_replace('Å', 'aa', $title);
$title = str_replace('å', 'aa', $title);
$title = str_replace('€', 'Eur', $title);

German Slugs ought to be pre-installed in German versions of WordPress
As long as that isn’t the case, German Slugs is the number one choice for those who care whether their German post titles can still be read after they’ve been converted into slugs.

Additional transliterations can easily be added when needed. The plugin’s structure is so simple, it’s hard to go wrong. If you want additional characters to be transliterated correctly, you just have to type one short line each within the plugin’s file lib.php.

The letters Åå and € are examples of characters that are still handled incorrectly by WordPress. The above code shows what needs to be added to lib.php to fix that.

Super helpful for german blogs

Does what it says on the tin and didn't break anything. A more general plugin covering more than just german diacriticals would be helpful but for german blogs this is just right.

Only german umlauts plugin that also correctly removes accents
By , for WP 3.8.1

this is the only german umlaut plugin that correctly removes the accents from non-german slugs in addition to correctly converting german umlauts.

So this plugin should be used especially for multilanguage sites when german and e.g. french languages are used simultaneously!
