This is not an internationalization issue per se but it does affect my site as it appears on Studio Press Hosting with Japanese titles for categories.
I do not believe this is a genesis problem per se, but as my new host is Studio Press and the Migration company they are using (Fantasktic) has trouble migrating my site, I thought I would ask.
I am very frustrated. Studio Press has escalated my case. I think probably fantastic has done the migration correctly but something in the Hosting environment is screwy.
Please note the site is Japanese and English. Not two pages but mixed.
Original site: http://tokyoprogressive.org/news/
EVERYTHING WORKS FINE
New site: http://tokyoprogressive.org.uk/
ORGINALLY ALL CATEGORY PAGES FROM THE TOPIC MENU DID NOT LOAD. FANTASKTI FIXED THIS. NOW THEY LOAD. But copying and pasting a link gives you an error.
The problem starts when you click any of the topic links; i.e., Globalization.
Originally the page itself did not load (it did in the original).
Then they tweaked it and now it loads.
But copying the link (for example http://tokyoprogressive.org.uk/topics/globalisationグローバリゼーション/ ) and repasting results in an error. I suspect just clicking on the link i pasted will give you that error page.
Same without any other topic (category); i.e., http://tokyoprogressive.org.uk/topics/japanese?—?本語/
In this case a Not found, error 404 error.
(Note that copying and pasting any article URL does not generate errors but only (so far) these categories.
HINT OF SOLUTION?
I asked a friend on an APPLE users site and he said:
"It is not really an encoding issue, but a capitalization issue. If you look at the source of the page you will see WordPress uses lower case for the % hex encoding in a URI:
<link rel="canonical" href="http://tokyoprogressive.org.uk/topics/japanese%e6%97%a5%e6%9c%ac%e8%aa%9e/" />
but what you are pulling out of your browser's address bar is uppercase:
and alas, while RFC3986 claims percent encoding should be treated case insensitively, WordPress doesn't.
IS THIS WHAT HE WREOTE ABOVE THE ISSUE?
WHHY DID IT WORK OK ON TOKYOPROGRESSIVE.ORG BUT NOT ON TOKYOPROGRESSIVE.ORG
There are a number of ways your host can fix this, from "fixing" WordPress (there was a patch years ago that wasn't accepted into the mainstream, but you could apply it to your local instance), to using a webserver rewrite rule, to adding a WordPress plugin to make URLs case insensitive. My guess is your original host has done one of these."
1) Does this sound right?
My OLD host is not specialized in Word Press but could it be he is doing things right?
2) Does my Apple user friend have it correct?
4) It seems odd that WordPress would give Japanese URLs trouble but I wonder what I should ask StudioPress and/or Fantastic
Please note that when Fantasktic does a migration a myasterious M appears in my category list Topics. GThis has happened twice and appeared under both the old site and new site. I can go in an fix this but still thought worth noting.
When the site is up and running Studio Press will do an internal migration to tokyoprogressive.org but am using tokyoprogressive.org.uk as the staging site since i did not know in advance they have a proxy to preview.
As such my site has been on hold for a few weeks. Getting frustrating and already 3 plus weeks of fees to SP down the drain.
Thank you.http://tokyoprogressive.org.uk/March 28, 2017 at 10:12 pm #203985
This issue affects copying and pasting category links. So, if you go to a sidebar and click on a category link--at least the ones i have tested that have Japanese------you get the same error.
Again, never a problem on my old host. Since I like Studio Press, I want this to work. I like my old host, but there are many pluses about being with the people who make my theme. So hoping it can get sorted out. First question is why it is working on the tokyoprogressive.org site.March 29, 2017 at 10:15 am #204010
No-one has any suggestions?April 11, 2017 at 5:38 am #204615
