XF 1.1 Strange characters in friendly link.

    Hi there people,

    When I create a node with a name that has special characters like lots of words in portuguese some of these names generate links with strange names. For instance:

    Name: Notícias & Anúncios
    Link: not%C3%ADcias-anúncios.26

    I don't understand why it could use the Ú but not the Í. Actually I just noted that all characters (Á, É, Ó, Ú, Ã, Õ and Ç) works. Only the Í creates these strange links.

    Is there a way to fix it?

    Thanks a lot,
    Daniel Bittar.

    Thanks Jake, it worked. But as I suggested in the other thread, it could be the default behavior of XenForo so we don't need to change it every update.

    Any idea I would be getting something like


    or other weird symbols or just like a random letter or character when opening a thread?

    Are you talking about URLs or post content? It looks like post content?

    Did you import from another forum application? Which one?
