Hi, I created a post with chinese characters as the title and I have permalink activated to /%postname%/

The webconfig file is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
			<rule name="wordpress" patternSyntax="Wildcard">
				<match url="*"/>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsFile" negate="true"/>
						<add input="{REQUEST_FILENAME}" matchType="IsDirectory" negate="true"/>
				<action type="Rewrite" url="index.php"/>

When I click on the link to view the post it then jumps to the page:
hidden link

Is there anything I am missing in the WPML configuration?

Hi Harshad,

I already installed the rewrite module for the IIS I am able to navigate to pages without using page ID. For example, hidden link works with the permalink activated.

Dear Timothy,

Does the post page works when you disable WPML and addon plugins

I have WPML and all the plugins activated and the permalink works. The only thing that doesn't work is when the url is encoded with chinese characters then the link will turn into:

hidden link
