[pmwiki-users] Something (possibly the sqlite recipe) seems to have trouble with UTF-8 in wikilinks

There is indeed something wrong with your installation, this is not a right  
URL to the page: the %25 pieces should be just %, not %25. Something is  
causing a double encoding of the % symbol.

The correct address to the "SelimKuçi" page should be

but as you noticed, it doesn't work. This link, and a pagelist works  
perfectly with international page names on my own wiki with SQLite,  
including a page named SelimKuçi.

Here is what you should try:

1. Read the section "Order of the commands in config.php" here:


notably, the custom page store class should be defined before UTF-8.

Or, you may also re-read the installation instructions at Cookbook/SQLite,  
notably "The code above should be placed before including other recipes and  
scripts, notably before ... UTF-8."

You have included the UTF-8 script before defining the SQLite page store,  
just try to move it after the sqlite/$WikiLibDirs block.

If you have other things out ot the recommended order, move them.

2. If that doesn't help, see if you can disable some other recipes, for  
example those here: http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Category/CustomPageStore and  
other, one by one, to see if it doesn't start to work at some point.

The fact is, this international page name works perfectly well with PmWiki,
- with SQLite, and
- without SQLite,
so the problem likely comes from something completely unrelated to the  
SQLite recipe. I wouldn't speculate that it comes from *this* recipe in a  
mailing list subject, without at least *some* evidence.

Please enable remote diagnostics on that site, $EnableDiag=1; to config.php.
