Add-On Type(s)



This extension allows you to automatically convert non-latin characters in entry’s URL title according to a predefined set of conversion rules.

Using URL Title Chars extension conversion rule can be defined by editing just language file. To do it you should type a line such as this:

'url_title_char_916'       =>    "d",    // Δ Greek Capital Letter Delta 

In this line using symbol’s decimal notation (916) was set that Greek capital letter delta if found in URL title should be converted into latin letter “d”.


1) download and unzip the package
2) open the file lang.url_title_chars.php in text editor.
3) edit conversion rules; in order to find each symbol’s decimal representation use Mr. Richard Ishida’s Unicode Code Converter
4) upload files to language and extensions folders.
5) enable extension.
