Doesn't support hebrew URL's
« on: August 17, 2011, 12:37:03 PM »
Hello there,

I really need some sort of solution to the following bug:
I have some URLs with hebrew involved in the URL, for example:
[external links are visible to admins only]

Now, When I use the generator it doesn't create a correct link, It creates this:
[external links are visible to admins only]

How can I fix this?

Thanks ahead,
Eliran.

Hello,

try to enable utf-8 charset setting in generator config.

Hello,
My site coding is: Windows-1255 not utf-8.

I tried to change the XML coding to Windows-1255 but it still doesn't help.

Also, in the "Advanced settings" I chose the UTF-8 charset and it simply doesn't add the hebrew URL's to the XML.

What should I do?

In this case you should keep utf-8 setting disabled.
I see you have tag URLs specified in html source as:
<a href="http://domain/tags/פקמן" title="משחקי פקמן">

while it must be:
<a href="http://domainl/tags/%D7%90%D7%95%D7%95%D7%98%D7%90%D7%A8" title="משחקי פקמן">

I'll see if i can make my site UTF-8 first, if not I will do what you suggested.
Thanks for your support.

try to enable utf-8 charset setting in generator config.

Hi - I'm looking for this config setting, but can't find it - I'm running Standalone Sitemap Generator (PHP) v3.0, 2009-05-19. A screenshot or something similar to help me unambiguously find the setting (in the Configuration section of the web-interface, I presume) would be really helpful. I'm experiencing similar problems to those described above (except the language is French), but my HTML page encoding is definitely UTF-8, so I'm hoping to be able to fix this behaviour.

Many thanks,
Chris

Hello,

you need to upgrade to the latest version (v5.0) - you can use the same download link to get it.
