A character "„" („, U+201E, double low-9 quotation mark) is not not cleared from slug and permalink url in %postname%.

It is very popular character in post titles in many European countries because it is used in smart quotes in MS Word and other text processors for example in Polish.

To reproduce:

  1. Go to and login as admin with passsword "demo123".
  2. Switch to "Month and name" in permalink settings.
  3. Create a post with a title of "foo „bar” foo"
  4. The post gets a permalink of which does not work.
