Look, I’m developing the portal to my music label, and I’m having a pretty chatinho problem.
I’m recording the news, album names, artist names and so on.
When I register in the DB I play in a field the original artist name and in the other field the name for URL using the
The problem is that when the artist name has special accents eg
á ê ô í ú à , etc, it saves the name without this character, but without replacing with
a e o i u , then the field is empty and the name is incomplete, the URL is not at all friendly.
I’ve tried using
str_replace but I was not successful, it replaced the characters in wrong shapes too.
Can anyone give me a light or some solution?
I managed to solve boys.
convert_accented_characters() is the function that I did not know that performs this.
