Issue with orthographic accent in products url

Hi, I use ERPNext in spanish, and there is a problem, if a product has a name with orthographic accent and “Show in website” is enabled after going to the category to see the products listed and selecting the product with orthographic accent it gives an error because the url includes the letter with orthographic accent by example: Item name: “Pistache con cáscara” generates the URLáscara-4mix1

Resulting in error:
Uncaught Server Exception
Traceback (most recent call last):

UnicodeEncodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t encode character u’\xe1’ in position 82: ordinal not in range(128)

How can solve this? Thanks in advance.


Accented characters are not supported in the url.

If i’m not mistaken, you have checked show in wesbite in the item master.

Try editing the route manually using the usual english characters and see if it works out!

Hi kennethsequeira, I understand that accented characters are not supported in the URL, I think it could be great it ERPNext could handle the creation of the links removing the accents automatically.
