After one of the recent updates all our Connections images and logos with cyrillic slugs stopped working.
The problem is, UTF-8 folder names inside
wp-content/uploads/connections-images are urlencoded, such as:
%d0%be%d0%bb%d1%8c%d0%b3%d0%b0-%d1%81%d1%82%d0%b5%d1%88%d0%ba%d0%b8%d0%bd%d0%b0. But the HTTP server looks for UTF-8 folder names, such as
ольга-стешкина, as it’s supposed to.
Could you please advise what can be done here to fix the problem?
The actual folder and filename are encoded? Huh! I use a core WordPress function
sanitize_title() which in turn uses
sanitize_title_with_dashes(). In that later function it does indeed check for UTF8 and encodes them to be URI safe. I never know that! I wonder why?
I use that function to create entry slug, this slug is also used to create the entry file folder name.
It seems is can also do a check for UTF8 and use the
sanitize_file_name() instead to create the entry slug.
Could I get a temp admin account and temp access to FTP so I can test this to make sure the solution will work? The login details can be sent via the contact link at the bottom of the page.
Thanks for your reply. Sending the credentials!
I have a beta of the next bugfix release if you want to give it a try before its released? If you do, please let me know.
I’m going to mark this resolved as version 8.1.5 should address any issues with UTF8 Cyrillic slugs.
