Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

[SOLVED] What are the "rules" about using special characters in page titles?

I created a sub-sub-level page with the name "N°sting" and all seemed good. I published the page as normal, it showed up in the menu bar as a drop-drop-down, but when I clicked on it Firefox reported that the page could not be found.

I went back to editing the page in the WP Dashboard and noticed the "°" was not appearing happily in the slug so substituted a plain lowercase "o" and suddenly the page could be found and loaded normally.

I now notice that the Permalink appears as: "http://www.hatchtown.com/tools/misc-tools/nosting"

So, I'm VERY happy! At the top of the page AND on the dropdown menu the title still shows as "N°sty", but it's plain "nosty" behind the scenes.

I will be happier if I understand what characters are allowed / not allowed and what are the workarounds for using them.
