Attachment file with accent

  1. when an attachement file with accent is uploaded in the gravity form, i got an error 404 not found because the accent is encoded... it could more safe to make a string replace for a lowercase et remove all accent ??

  2. Can you paste the filename here, and also provide a link to the file as it appeared in your notification or entry, and then the actual location of the file with a safe URL? Thank you.

  3. I'm facing the same problem.

    A user has uploaded a file using GF named 'Resumé_OnTrack_test_12.1.13.doc', when it gets saved to the filesystem (Windows NTFS running WAMP) the filename is 'Resumé_OnTrack_test_12.1.13.doc'.

    I don't usually use a windows server but it is a requirement of the client. The resulting link still points to the original filename. Not sure if this is windows specific.

  4. After a bit of research I'm guessing this is a character encoding issue. Is this something I can fix myself or does gravity forms need to updated to handle this issue?

  5. I believe this is Windows-specific or at least specific to your installation. I did not have that issue when uploading a file with that name on a Linux server. In my installation, I uploaded "Resumé OnTrack test 12.1.13.doc" and it was renamed to "Resumé-OnTrack-test-12.1.13.doc" and is visible here: http://gravity.chrishajer.com/wp-content/uploads/gravity_forms/42-4c058edfc0abbf5534dade7c443d2620/2013/01/Resumé-OnTrack-test-12.1.13.doc

  6. Yes my linux server works fine too, but not Windows. Have you tested on a windows server or is windows not supported?

  7. I don't have a Windows server to test on at the moment. Let me ask the development team about this one.

    I wonder if it's a problem with a PHP module on the WAMP server? Do you know if mbstring is loaded (for multi-byte strings)? Can you post a link to your php info?
