Any news concerning this problem? Unfortunately our users can't search for words with an umlaut
Are you using Tomcat? If so you'll need to edit the <CATALINA_HOME>/conf/server.xml file and add the following attribute to your Connector definition:
Once this is done, you'll need to restart Tomcat for the setting to take effect. That should resolve the problem that you are seeing.
As Austen mentioned, the issue here is that the app server isn't using UTF-8 URL encoding. If you're not using tomcat, you'll need to consult your app servers documentation to find out how you can ensure that it is using UTF-8 URL encoding and decoding.
Are there any other places where umlauts and mutated vowels are not appearing as expected?
Hey Sean and Austen,
thanks for your help! Users can now search for words with an umlaut. Unfortunately it doesn't work for the tags (tag cloud) I don't get it...
