I purchased a new licence in order to upgrade. i was already using the xentag addon which had all my thread tags from vb. i used the addon that imports the addon tags to the core system tags but now all greek characters in the tags urls are showing as latin characters while this is not the case in thread urls, this keeps me from proceeding with the upgrade.
do u have a fix or u will fix it on the next version ?
@Brogan so u are saying that the system is designed to support greek turkish etc characters on the THREAD URLS and to convert greek turkish etc into latin characters in TAG URLS ? becouse if thats the case is irrational to say at least.
i hope i get a reliable answer this time, i never asked about id or whatever. no greek characters in tag urls means no upgrade .
You over simplified the example thread as it's: threads/greek-encoding-on-the-tags-ελληνικα.120059/ (Technically, it's actually threads/greek-encoding-on-the-tags-%CE%B5%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%B7%CE%BD%CE%B9%CE%BA%CE%B1.120059/) The number is the important part and why we allow non-ASCII there, if you are happy with URL encoding (which a number of people aren't). In tags, we took an approach that didn't require the number and didn't run the risk of character encoding issues (which would break URLs entirely), which requires Romanization. You'll see this limited set of allowed characters anywhere we use a string as an identifier.
@Mike our tag pages are using greek characters and it is an important part of our SEO. it has been like this since vb and later or with xf (the tag addon uses greek with no issues at the url). upgrading to a system that will change our tags from greek to latin is not option since it will be like downgrading. this is an issue with most non english forums. plz make sure a future fix is applied. keep in mind that i paid for a new version only becouse i wanted to have sitemaps and tags in the core and now i cant not upgrade.
