If I create an entry with international characters in urls? e.g. for Polish language?

If I create an entry with the word "ułatwienia" in the url, it doesn't work (I get Craft serving up the 404 page), I take out the special ł character and it's fine.

Although interestingly, the Live Preview url works fine with the special character included.

Have I missed something?

That should work fine and I just tested locally with a fresh Craft installation on the latest build and ułatwienia works in the slug for me.

Maybe you've got the limitAutoSlugsToAscii config setting set to true and ł gets changed to l in the slug, but you're still entering ł in the URL?

  • Checked if this was option was set but it wasn't and explicity setting it to false didn't change anthing.I wondered if this was relating to my hosting on Windows/IIS since I was seeing the ł character being replaced with ? in the craft logs for the request. I've just moved my setup to a LAMP server, no other changes, and its working fine. Thanks

  • Possible, I suppose. I've got a Windows/IIS box I'll test on to make sure.
