I wanted to update my profile at http://careers.stackoverflow.com/ with my URL (davidhaberthür.ch) which is perfectly valid, but Stack Overflow complains that "Web site Url does not appear to be valid". I now used the workaround URL which contains an 'ue' for the 'ü', but would like to use my real name URL in my profile.

Thanks for pointing this out. Would you try it again?

  • Doesn't for me: meta.stackoverflow.com/users/171811/habi No matter how many 'ü's I put in the URL, they're always swallowed… Update: It works for careers.stackoverflow.com though

  • @Habi In case you're still interested in using an IDN URL in your regular stack exchange profiles, try the hack described in this answer. Commented Aug 25, 2013 at 23:11
  • Thanks James, that worked as intended.
