#356 closed defect (fixed)

utf-8 problem with BlogShow Macro

Reported by: gernot@… Owned by: John Hampton
Priority: normal Component: TracBlogPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.9


I get an trac error "'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 10172: ordinal not in range(128)" when I write a blog entry with a german umlaut (äöü). The error occurs only in the Wiki Macro BlogShow, not on the blog page

I can't duplicate this error. I've tried with 0.9.5 and with trunk. Can you please try the latest version of the blog plugin from trunk?

By the way, it's a great plugin ! I'm running trac 0.9.5, TracBlogPlugin 0.10 and python 2.3.3 The funny thing is, when I view the blog entry on the blog page, everything is fine. The error only occurs on my main wiki page which looks like this:

hehe, next time, you might want to put any wiki text that you paste in a code block:

wiki text here

As far as tracking down the issue, can you veryify that you are running the latest trunk version of TracBlogPlugin?

Specifically, make sure that line 166 of tracblogplugin/0.10/blog/ looks like:

        return unicode(req.hdf.render('blog.cs'), 'utf-8')

If there isn't that call to unicode() then make sure you update the plugin.

Will you also post the text in question (the text that causes the error) in a code block on this ticket? Thanks.

Same problem here, I'm running an up to date plugin. The blog entry shows up fine on its own, the problem happens when it goes through the BlogShow() macro. The entry contains just an ñ (spanish n-tilde character).

Give [766] a try.

I think that should fix it. It is really an issue with the lack of unicode support in 0.9.x

If that fixes it for you, please close the ticket.

Changeset 766 works for me, thank you very much for your help, pacopablo. I couldn't live without your plugin ;-)
