Page Manager breaks with intl characters (åäö)

edited February 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
After some trouble shooting I've discovered that the Page Manager extension breaks when you enter a page name containing non-english characters like the Swedish åäö. The tab is added, but clicking it sends you to the discussions front page. What's more, you cannot delete the newly made tab! After pressing the cross for delete, you're simply not "allowed" to choose that page in order to delete it! (Try for yourselves to see what I mean). As it stands now, you need to manually delete CustomPages.php from the PageMng extension folder to reset things. I've tried using the HTML equivalents to åäö, i.e. ä etc, but it won't work. Perhaps some sort of hack to replace Ã¥ and ä with a, and ö with o, would be possible that still kept the åäö visible to the user? Any ideas? Its a fantastic extension, albeit English-speaking only!

    Very frustrating for you. This shouldn't be too hard to fix Thomas, at least the HTML equivalents to those characters should be a workable option.

    I have a habit of using an HTML non-breaking space which translates into a diamond with a ? in it sometimes. Very weird.

    So it's over to the experts... pic

    In all honesty, it's less frustrating now that I realised what was going on! But then again, åäö are pretty useful in Swedish, I guess that's why we have them! btw: anyone try integrating page manager with something like FCKeditor? Would make Vanilla a true mini-cms ;-)

    Hej Wanderer, allt är bra! But something tells me you're not native ;-)

    Glad to hear all is good, and you're not talking about my underwear!

    No, not a Swedish bone in my ancestry but a great translating OS X widget!

    Samtal till dig som är mer sistnämnd.

    Right! But that last sentence makes absolutely no sense!

    It's supposed to be: talk to you later pic

    Well it came out more like something like "discussion to you who are more last-mentioned". o.O
