Re: [EP-tech] Eprints-Elements and the "ę"

Hi James,

If you add a record directly to EPrints, and use the character ę in a name (or other field), does it save OK?

I've just tried on a 3.3.10 install, and it seems to handle this without any issues - which might point to the issue being elsewhere.


Is there anything in the error logs regarding this - or was it a trial-and-error approach to find the cause of the problems?

Subject: [EP-tech] Eprints-Elements and the "ę"


Hi all,


We have Elements and EPrints. Recently an article couldn't be uploaded to EPrints from Elements. After a fair bit of messing around, I've worked out the letter "ę" is preventing the file upload (I removed the author with this letter and the file went on without a problem).


Unfortunately, this means the problem is with EPrints. Does anybody know of a straight-forward way of getting this to work without necessarily changing the spelling of the author's name?


I found this which I think might be my answer, but we're using 3.3.14 so maybe there is another solution?



All advice and guidance greatly appreciated as ever!
