if I post a entry with german umlauts the editor cuts of on the first occurence of a umlaut the whole text and saves only the beginning.

in prior versions of wp it too happened.

each text can be taken - for example:

otto otto rüstung alf alf

will be cut to:

otto otto

character encoding is utf-8.

you can test under:


there is an admin user:

adminwptrack paswd: wptrack

please let me know when you have finished testing, so I can remove the user.

with this admin user you will have this reported case.

strange is, that with an user as editor it is working correct:

user: wptrack1 paswd: wptrack

out of security reasons I remove the user adminwptrack - everyone could have access to other blogs (it is a multisite feature enabled installation)

but with the admin user I have this problem and with the other editor user it is working fine.

Unable to reproduce either with current trunk or .de 3.0.1 e.g. with new post and text section as mentioned above.

Are you running any plugins? At which point is the post content removed, is it when a post is saved, or published?

Does the host run mod security or anything that might interfere with posted content?

please log in to the blog above and test it by yourself - please tell at which time you would test, then I can give you a admin user. it happens with a admin user only, the other user types are working well!!! as it is a wordpress mu installation, migrated to wp 3.0 you have access with a admin user to all blogs. so i would give you the access only for the time you test it.

for me any time after 16:00 o'clock germany time is ok.

it is not a problem of the server or plugins as it happens only with the admin user - when the post is saved and also published. With the other user types editor for example it works without problems.

"it is not a problem of the server or plugins as it happens only with the admin user"

You need to test this without plugins, whether it happens only for a certain user or not.
