#18634 closed feature request (duplicate)

Foreign characters in filenames

Not sure if this is a feature request or a bug, and if this has been reported before (I wasn't able to find it at least).

When users upload a file that has foreign characters in the filename the link to that file will not work. I'm Icelandic and this happens to me fairly often, and I don't wan't to have to worry about whether the person uploading has changed the filename properly or not.

This happens to me specially with Icelandic letters, like ð, þ, é, á, and others like that.

I have written a plugin that handles this for Icelandic letters, it maybe can be done better or in a simpler way, but since this works for me, I've been using it.

If that's on Windows, could be a duplicate of #15955.

This is specific to Windows builds of PHP (see my comment in #15955).

Not sure if there's a good solution until PHP supports working with Windows filenames in Unicode.
