Re: wcz_utf8_url - native unicode urls

I found a problem, that I can’t solve myself.
The register_callback isn’t used, when I edit an alread saved article.

register_callback('wcz_utf8_url','sanitize_for_url');

I played a little bit around with adding options like $step or $pre, but couldn’t find a solution. I tried it on a fresh installation but no success.
Do I have to register another callback?

The problem raminrahimi reported here, is linked to right-to-left languages. So the url transformations aren’t working.

Re: wcz_utf8_url - native unicode urls

Have you declared the right plugin type? I think you must declare it being of type 5 (“Admin + Public (+AJAX)”) to support the new AJAX calls when you modify an article.
