Ah, maybe, I’m not a developer. In any case, the blog of the last site I’ve done is in French and it can show the chars ä, ö, ü, etc.

Thanks for contributing with your ticket.

This case only non latin languages i think, English, French, German must be ok, but Chinese and Russian may case problems.

WOW=) Thanks Juanitou, that seamed to do the trick. Just by adding "mb_" to the line. Im not a programmer so I dont know what the extra letters mean, but the main thing is that it works now, =)

I had to use some htmlentities() for the Archive widget and the following change in line 55 of TagCloudWidget.php:

$theseTags = split(" *, *", mb_strtolower(trim($entry->Tags)));

Also, try to save your templates in UTF8 without BOM.

"I had to use some htmlentities() for the Archive widget" What kind of changes did you do to the Archive widget Juan?

Ive noticed that the change made to the line in TagCloudWidget.php fixed the problem with the non english characters in the tagcloud but the actual link code is still not working and showing %C3%A4 instead of non english characters (äåö).
