i wanted to file a bug in the rubyonrails trac, since trac is currently
broken, i am writing this here. maybe there is a solution allready:
auto_complete_for has no support for umlauts. this i a very big problem
for non-english developers out there, since almost everything searched
for contains umlauts.
- searching by umlauts is not possible
- displaying of the found entries is screwed
escape the search and the results.
auto_complete_for has no support for umlauts.
after trying everything from the wiki.rubyonrails.org pages
the solution was quite trivial.
check that the database encoding is UTF8 (in PostgreSQL: Unicode) -
sqlite on win32 should not be a problem
add a meta value to serve unicode documents to your layout
tried everywhere with mongrel, works perfectly with umlauts (don’t
forget that you english speaking ppl might use the term “doppelgÃ¤nger”
which is an english term with umlauts!)
this should also work for apache.
hope some other guys also post solutions, since i found loooooots of
unanswered questions on this list/forum.
