In Spanish Language we have many tags with accents. For example, solicitud-de-término.

I was writing a post in the Meta of that site and wanted to mention that tag, so I wrote:


However, it did not get rendered and shows a literal [tag:solicitud-de-término].

Currently I am creating tag synonyms without the accents, but it doesn't seem to be useful to generate such amount of data.

Since tags to accept such characters, could you also support using them in the [tag:XX] markdown thingy?

  • Thanks @Glorfindel . This is indeed related, but not the same: we do have support for them, only that there is no support in the markdown. I just checked in French L&U and they do have, so [tag:étymologie] was displayed properly. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Jul 28 '16 at 9:36

    At the moment it looks like this works on "the-site", and doesn't work on "meta.the-site" (proof, for people who can see deleted posts: spanish.stackexchange.com/q/17569/6812) - I will see if I can find out why – Marc Gravell Jul 28 '16 at 12:12
  • Note: please don't go creating synonyms for this, unless they would be valid in the first place... – Marc Gravell Jul 28 '16 at 12:13
  • @MarcGravell OK, sorry for that. I had created one (frases-idiomaticas) but I just removed it. Thanks for checking this! – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Jul 28 '16 at 12:53
  • @MarcGravell could you have a look at this? Currently it still does not show properly: example. – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Aug 11 '16 at 9:10

    Sorry about that, it's fixed now – Konamiman Nov 15 '16 at 11:22

I answered a related question in the Meta Spanish site but I post it here too for completeness:

We have a per-site setting that tells whether non-ASCII characters are supposed to appear in tags or not, it was (mistakenly) set to "no" in that site. It's fixed now.

  • I am curious after all the process: I opened this question, got some comments by a developer and then I had to open a bounty, open the same question in Spanish's Meta and ping a couple devs more to get it solved. Shouldn't there be easier ways to get attention to a topic if it was this easy to fix? Thanks for your time! – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Nov 15 '16 at 12:30
  • Maybe you did get attention, but not priority :) . – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 12:31
  • @PatrickHofman then there should be a way to know if it is status-work-in-progress, because otherwise it looked status-forgotten : ) – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Nov 15 '16 at 12:33

    I think there was a feature request to add some more progress insight on status tags. – Patrick Hofman Nov 15 '16 at 12:34
