my problem is that names of users (as displayed next to questions etc.) containing special characters such as "ö" (German) are displayed with cryptic character codes in Q2A. For example, my own name, which should be "lukas_könig" is shown as "lukas_k%c3%b6nig".
My Q2A platform is set up within wordpress. Q2A receives user data from wordpress which in turn gets the users over an LDAP interface, so the names Q2A gets are given from outside. (lukas_könig is not the user name in word press, but given as first and surname, so Q2A seems to construct the name to display by putting a "_" in between.)
I tried to fix the problem by changing the "public name" in wordpress to one without special characters, but it didn't work (although wordpress itself displays special characters correctly). Also, as I am expecting several hundreds of users, I am looking for a more general solution to the problem.
Is there a way to solve this once and for all?
