Confluence unfriendly URL slug with accent

REGE78 I'm New Here Oct 13, 2021


I see Confluence tries to generate a nice URL but it fails with accents, so at least it should be editable. Looks like it is so difficult to replace "á" with "a".

We have accent in most of the page titles, but all accents are replaced with plus sign. It looks really ugly when we have see "+" more than 5 times in the URL. That is not user friendly.

@REGE78 Welcome to the Atlassian Community

I was able to confirm the functionality but was unable to find any documentation on this.  My guess is that they do not have anything to handle the special characters so they just replace them with the + symbol.  I would suggest submitting a support issue to Atlassian to see if they have any plans to make a change to better crosswalk and replace characters in the future.

I also checked to see if a feature request existed but was not able to find one so you might also consider submitting one here:
