#16905 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

sanitize_title calls remove_accents before applying filters

As of r15929, sanitize_title in formatting.php calls remove_accents directly. remove_accents used to be called in sanitize_title_with_dashes, which in turn is one of the default filters applied in sanitize_title. The change takes away the possibility for plugins to change the title using a filter before accents are removed, or to avoid removing accents altogether.

One of the plugins broken by the change is my German Slugs.

  • #9591, where the change originated
  • #15248, where unsalkorkmaz has a similar complaint that could at least have been worked around before the change, now there seems to be no chance to do so using the plugin API
  • #9492, where the deeper issue with WordPress indiscriminately removing diacritics (that's right, not all diacritics are mere accents, remove_accents is a misnomer) is addressed. With that I think one can live – as long as it remains possible to fix it via the plugin API.

That's just a first idea. This does not re-instates the default behaviour and I think it's of general limited use.

For me it's unclear right now when remove_accents() had been invoked previously.

Call sanitize title prior remove_accents

$raw_title is available as second parameter passed to the sanitize_title filter.

AFAIK it has the original title and should help you to override any changes remove_accent() already has done.

Isn't it suitable for your workarounds?

Probably it's better to normalize the data in remove_accents() and make the transliteration table overload-able - Related: #16908

Thanks for pointing me to $raw_title, that does make a workaround possible.
