[SOLVED][Drupal Pathauto] Double-quote (“) character is retained in the URL alias

March 05, 2013 - 16:51

A Drupal user using running a Drupal website in another language encountered a situation where the Double-quote (“) character is retained in the URL aliases generated by the Drupal Pathauto module. If you happen to be running a Drupal website in a language other than English and encountering such characters in the alias generated by the Drupal Pathauto module then proceed down below to know the solution.

Here are a few solutions proposed by Drupal users who had faced this issue.

  • You can remove the unwanted characters by checking "Reduce strings to letters and numbers" in the Settings pages of the Pathauto module.
    admin/config/search/path/settings
  • Another solution is to enable the Transliteration option in your Drupal site.
  • This will convert Unicode double-quotes into US-ASCII double-quotes which will enable it to be handled by the character filter of the Drupal Pathauto module

Hope that helps.
