Hey all
I have had this problem for awhile now.. been going around it but now i cannot i have to solve this plz help :D
Most of my website are for french ppl so they include special chars like é,è,à and stuff like that.
I used the urlencode() function and it works fine for those chars but it messes up the space :( it replaces the space with + instead of %20 or just leaving the freaking space alone...
I tried every function i could think of and NONE seemed to be replacing all chars correctly.
I do not want to have a huge str_replace function with every special char.... I'll always be missing some :(
Any advice ??

+ is quite normal for url encoding spaces. You shouldn't have a problem with it. If it's really a problem, apply urlencode, then replace '+' with '%20'. Should be all you need - + is not used for anything else in URLs.
