Unable to add Mutibyte Character Tags

  • firetheweb


    It seems that the function in the file



    prevent me from adding Chinese tags to my posts.

    I also tried to add Japanese tags, it failed too.

    I am working on the problem now and I want to know if we have already got a solution here.

    Here is a hacked version, I have tested it for Chinese and Japanese tags and it works.Basically, it just excludes mutibyte chars(x80-xff) from the stopdata.

    function sanitize_with_dashes( $text ) {

    $text = strip_tags($text);

    $text = remove_accents($text);

    $text = strtolower($text);

    $text = preg_replace(‘/&(^x80-xff)+?;/’, ”, $text); // kill entities

    $text = preg_replace(‘/[^a-z0-9×80-xff _-]/’, ”, $text);

    $text = preg_replace(‘/s+/’, ‘-‘, $text);

    $text = preg_replace(array(‘|-+|’, ‘|_+|’), array(‘-‘, ‘_’), $text); // Kill the repeats

    return $text;


    This hacked version works very well in Japanese!

    firetheweb, that works for cyrillic, i can Add tags BUT i cannot search topics by that tags :(

    Any suggestions???

    This hacked version not works for cyrillic.

    I’ve make a plugin for automatic transliteration of tags.

    The plugin is available for view here and for download here

    Этот плагин действительно не работает для кириллицы. Вместо него я сделал плагин для автоматической транслитерации тэгов.

    Плагин можно посмотреть здесь и загрузить здесь

    This issue, which we can add Mutibyte Character Tags but ca not search by Mutibyte Character Tags is not solved in version 0.8. Does anybody have any patch/hack for this? many thanks.

    travelsuperlink (and others seeing this problem),

    If you could help us debug the problem, that’d be very helpful.

    You can log in with your username/password.




    sorry I just saw this post. I try it in this forum here, and it works perfect. However I knew it is not working in my personal forum. I will try it as in your tickets 585 and report to you the debugging code.

    thanks, and happy chinese new year to everyone.




    i tried the hack above but now the tag can be clicked but no topics show so i cant enter a topic to get the destroy the tag option. Is there any other way to destroy the tag?



    I think you could destroy the tag with phpMyAdmin or some other way, directly in the database, right?

    I think you could destroy the tag with phpMyAdmin or some other way, directly in the database, right?

    I don’t recommend that at all, because I assume that there’s a topic/tag-matching table somewhere and if that can’t find the tag in the other table things will get extremely screwy.

    It is very rarely a good idea to directly modify the database.



    it’s ok, i killed it by deleting the post it was associated with and using the recount feature in the admin

    funkyloveb, so sorry for your inconvenience.

    I reply to your forum to testing the Multibyte character Tag.

    Do you have any way to show UTF8 tag properly?

    I try this post & fix 0.8.1 still not solve the problmes.



    thats ok.

    I haven’t found a way to make them work yet, hopefully there will be a solution soon
