    Danish æ, ø and å in url

    Hi all,

    When using a capital Æ, Ø or Å no matter if it is in the beginning of the page name or in the middle or end then it will create an url with a lowercase æ, ø or å.

    Example: Page name: Ål | url: ål Page name: MÅL | url: mål Page name: Mål | url: maal Page name: ål | url: aal

    Might there be a fix somewhere or anywhere to change this?

    Hi,

    You could add the characters in umbracoSettings.config

        <requestHandler>
         <urlReplacing ...>
           ....
           <char org="Æ">ae</char>
         </urlReplacing>
        </requestHandler>
    

    Hope that helps

    /Martin

    Hi Martin,

    I actually tried that and it gave me an error.

    However I looked into the error again and found that you cannot use Æ, Ø and Å you have to use an encoded value like this:

    <char org="&#198;">ae</char>
    <char org="&#216;">oe</char>
    <char org="&#197;">aa</char>
    

    Also these are the values for the capital letters of course.

    Anyways, thank you.

    Regards,

    Scott

    Hi Scott and Martin

    When I replaced all three danish letters, they worked but created another problem with all the other letters in any word.

    1. Solved the first letter problem
    2. And created another problem and had to add lower case characters to the rule as well.
    3. I also noticed that characters like "é" couldn't be converted so had to another rule for that.

    Aren't there any better way of fixing this? As at some point I might run into another character which is not working.
