Slugs Character issues

Hi Guys,

I have noticed a bug today with a site I have just launched in relation to the Blog and Slugs. So the title of the article is
Taiyo Yuden leads with first 470µF high value multilayer capacitors reducing board space

Which generates this slug
/news/2015/11/taiyo-yuden-leads-with-first-470µf-high-value-multilayer-capacitors-reducing-board-space

However, this is throwing a 404 error.

I am thinking it is to do with the µ character? although not tested.

Thanks, Terry

Does the rewrite rule you're using to match the slug accommodate characters in that range? That would cause it not to match.

As for why it's not being stripped in the first place - do you have transliteration functions installed? It should be in your diagnostics report.

My newssug is

'newsslug'          => '[1-2][0-9]{3}\/[0-9]{2}\/[a-z0-9\-]+',

So perhaps not any ideas what I would need to add to include it?

As for the diagnostics;

Oh it's Runway, cool.

a-z won't match µ as it's not in the range. If you replace the a-z with \w ('word' character) does that help?

Afraid not :-(

Ok, let me run some tests and see what I can come up with.

Thanks Drew.
