I’d like to import names into acf fields of existing posts. The source is an utf8-formated xml-file.
I use a name-field from my source for all three fields in my repeater.
Name – textfield Herbert Schmidt Herbert Schmidt
Link – linkfield Herbert Schmidt url.de/person/herbert-schmidt
Image – imagefield Herbert Schmidt url.de/images/herbert-schmidt.jpg
“normal” names work fine. I get the Name, I get the url from the existing page und I get the connection to the existing image.
But names with “umlaute” / special characters like ä,ö,ü, do not work for the link and the image.
Name – textfield Herbert Müller Herbert Müller
Link – linkfield Herbert Mller or Herbert M-xFC-ller
Image – imagefield Herbert Mller or Herbert M-xFC-ller
But I need Herbert Muller or Herbert Mueller to connect with the existing files…
I tried the sanitize-function but it does not work either. I cannot connect the new post with the existing image and page.
When I edit the link-field in my imported post, I can search the name with the special character and it works fine.
What do I get wrong during the import? Thanks.
