Cannot rename tags with accentuated characters

Hi, I cannot rename tags with accentuated characters, for example, I cannot rename “education” into “éducation”. Is this possible and if yes, how? Thanks?

I do have tags with accents, and I’ve just tried to rename 3eme into 3ème, it works on 2.7.0.beta1 ( ee9ea20d95 ).
I’m not sure of what you mean by cannot and how, so on the page, click on details and rename, if that doesn’t work, :thinking: maybe (long shot) you could try setting slug generation method to ascii ?

Thanks for your answer.

  1. Renaming with the steps you outline does not work, I get the error message “tag already taken”
  2. slug generation method is already set to ascii

Other ideas?

I can add that both URLS:

  • /tag/education
  • /tag/éducation

output the same results

Could you have set them as synonyms?

Most probably yes, I have done that for some others.

Now that’s interesting when I ask to remove unused tags, “éducation” is listed in unused tags but it is not listed in the global tag list (it should)

Yep I think there is something fishy here, not quite sure what is going on, and as I’m not very familiar with tags I’d have to try a few things but it seems that a tag2 listed as synonym of tag1 is displayed as tag1 (should be tag2?), and the deletion of the synonym tag2 delete tag1 as well (but there I may not have clicked on the right place :sweat_smile: )

I will try for the time being to simply create my new tag “éducation” and tag my few topics with that manually. Not a big deal since I have few topics to tag. We will see later if others have ideas on the why it’s acting like that.

Deleting unused tags and renaming “education” tag to “éducation” tag worked… So “éducation” was in the database, why it did not display in the tag list is the question…
