Storygames with special characters can't link

8 years ago

So, I have a storygame with an umlaut in the title (ü to be precise). The problem here is that the URL it generates doesn’t actually lead to the story’s page. I assume this is because diacritics aren’t usually allowed in URLs.

Now, I could just use a ue instead, but because of aesthetics and authenticity and whatnot, I’d really prefer not to. Is there any way around this, or am I just gonna have to deal with it?

Here. I would post the special character for the character you are looking for, but I have rich text editor turned off.

Hmm... In some places, this works. But on the game's page for instance, it shows up as ü.

I've noticed that. The inconsistency in the use of special characters is annoying, to say the least. Well, sorry for the misinformation.

No worries. I’ll just use ue then.
