What happens[edit]

thumbnails from a new image, with diacritics in the filename, fail to load.

The following message is displayed:

Error creating thumbnail: convert: unable to open image `/var/www/wikitravel/upload/shared//6/65/Ostrava_Masarykovo_nmst.jpg': No such file or directory. convert: missing an image filename `/var/www/wikitravel/upload/shared//thumb/6/65/Ostrava_Masarykovo_nmst.jpg/180px-Ostrava_Masarykovo_nmst.jpg'


It looks like it ignores the non-standard letters when it is looking for a thumbnail.


This problem is caused not just by diacritics, but by any "non-standard" character—that includes characters from other languages. --Peter 16:20, 10 June 2009 (EDT)
What's the current status on this ticket? It is probably the same problem which has been reported in Tech:Image thumbnail not shown if filename contains special characters and Tech:Geo code not showing. Riggwelter 16:16, 20 June 2012 (EDT)
This now works properly. Closing. --Peter Talk 22:38, 20 June 2012 (EDT)

When it happens[edit]

when i try to use the image on a wikitravel page, or go to the category page on wikitravel shared.

What should happen[edit]

image should display correctly.

How to fix it[edit]

rename file to remove diacritics or fix bug.

Additional comments[edit]

I tried to rename the file but was unable to do so.

Renaming images is not possible, please just upload it again under a new name. Jpatokal 10:12, 10 June 2009 (EDT)
I have re-uploaded it, and the original has been speedy deleted. Thanks for your help. But of course the bug remains. Cloudz679 08:55, 13 June 2009 (EDT)
