Tags and at least scandinavian alphabets

When I publish a post in WordPress I can add tags for Discourse. That works just fine but if there is another characters than a-z, meaning åäö, in tags the plugin will drop those. Discourse itself has no problems.

I haven’t tried but perhaps with german, danish, norweigian etc has same issue.

Is there something I can do or is this more or less bug’ish character coding issue?

Hey @Jagster, thanks for this report.

I’ve made a PR to the WP Discourse plugin which adopts the same approach to tags that Discourse uses internally, which means that diacritics, i.e. åäö, will work like they do in normal Discourse tags.

When @simon merges it, this update will be present in the next version of the plugin: 2.3.1.
