    Image urls without special characters

    Hi..

    I have used Gecko Uploadify to upload multiple images.. the images is displayed on the website, but I have a problem with a jQuery plugin when the image url contains special characters like the Danish characters æ, ø and å related to this post .

    I noticed that when I use Umbracos standard upload datatype, it replaced a character like å and an emtpy space with underscore.

    Is there a way to change this in this package, so a replace special characters, like Umbracos standard upload datatype does?

    Bjarne

    I've noticed this too. Umbraco will parse the filenames when they are uploaded the standard way, but Gecko Uploadify does not. The client will upload files with special characters and depending on the browser that is used, the link may or may not be broken. It would be really nice if the filenames were parsed and the special characters removed.

    I just created a media handler, simular the one mentioned in the wiki, that renames the files as soon as they are saved. It appears to work fine with Gecko Uploadify, but it would be nice if we didn't have to do this.

    Yes, it would be nice if the package took this into account.. I think some javascript/jQuery plugins will stop working, when using special characters in the image url..

    I my case the browser open the image in the same window, instead of viewing the image inside the image placeholder.
