Refreshing url control pages

Hello.

Im trying to refresh a url on a control page, but I get this error in the log.
I guess its because of the letters ä and ö. How can I fix this?

Is the double slash right before meteogram.png supposed to be there? Doubt that's the problem but remove it anyway and try it.

Actually, unicode characters aren't valid in a URI though they are legal in an IRI. You need to escape your unicode characters and it should work.

Re: Refreshing url control pages

Most browsers will do it for you when copy/enter the URL in, then copy it out to the clipboard. Try using:

Code: Select all

Sadly, Safari doesn't. Chrome does however.

You can use this page to encode strings that have special characters - so just paste in the string with the unicode characters (not the entire URL) and it'll convert it.
