    The function responsible for rendering a text as an URL (XenForo_Link::getTitleForUrl()) has the option of having that text/URL romanized. Would it be possible to add an option in the admin panel so we could enable romanized URLs throughout the forums?

    Also, instead of going with strtr, using utf8_stripspecials (and adding the missing ":\r\n\t" characters) is way more complete. Here's my suggestion, replace the function with:
    public static function getTitleForUrl($title$romanize false)
        if (
    $title utf8_romanize(utf8_deaccent($title));

    $title utf8_strtolower($title);
    $title unhtmlentities($title); //let's remove ugly "quote" text from URLs
    $title strtr($title, array('"' => ''"'" => ''"’" => '')); //I don't particularly like this... in french "J'aime" shouldn't give "jaime", but preferably "j-aime"
    $title utf8_stripspecials($title' '':\s'); //for an unknown reason $UTF8_SPECIAL_CHARS2 doesn't include ":"

    $title preg_replace('/[ ]+/''-'trim($title));
