#47335 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Permalink is not well converted with German characters with Block Editor

Reported by: manooweb's profile manooweb Owned by:

Severity: normal Version:

Focuses: Cc:


Steps to reproduce

  • Put site language in German
  • Create a new post with a title in German with specific character like an umlaut for example on an "a" => ä
  • Save the post as Draft
  • See the umlaut is converted as a simple "a" instead of "ae". See : screenshot

It seems remove_accents does not do the job or not be applied.

When we edit the title - without saving the post - the URL Slug is not well converted too

Notice that it works well in a classic editor context with the same WordPress version.

Hello @manooweb, thanks for the report.

This is a known issue in the block editor (Gutenberg) which is already reported upstream on GitHub in

@ocean90 If you said :-)
Be careful about some languages like German, Danish, Serbian ... It is not just a replacement by removing accent or removing special characters as I saw in th other tickets.

See as you certainly know
