Error msg on click save estimation if editing the estimation for one ticket:

Failed to save! You must not use 8-bit bytestrings unless you use a text_factory that
can interpret 8-bit bytestrings (like text_factory = str). It is highly recommended
that you instead just switch your application to Unicode strings.

Trac is on utf-8 and i'm using sqlite3 for python 2.7

Have not encountered this error in trac 12. I will look and see if I can figure out whats going on. Are you in a locale that has a different char set (than the standard english / american one), just want to cover all my bases.

Also if you could enable TracLogging and post a debug log with the stack trace in it, this might make debugging go faster.

Cheers and thanks for the report,

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

I have continued to use this, without experiencing the error. Without a backtrace and with new versions released since then, I feel that closing this ticket is the only answer. Please reopen with a backtrace if you still have errors
