Non-English characters in URLs


Well-known member
A member in our community has issued a problem regarding Non-English characters in URLs.

Is there a way to change non-english characters like ü,ç,ş,ö,ğ to u,c,s,o,ğ ?

Otherwise the links get messy and doesn't look good.

Maybe via .htaccess ?

Normally it shows it as it is in the threat title. Example:


when I copy - past this link it looks like this:


Google indexes this as it is but it would be nice if someone could provide a code which we could use with htaccess to transform non english characters to english ones.

I'd have this thread link rather look like this: /threads/foruma-yeni-konu-nasil-acarim.5868/
