Bug: Send PM to a user with special chars in username from Kunena

3 months 3 weeks ago #303347 by Goldeye
Hi,

my users found another bug: If a username contains special chars (Umlaute), then it is not possible to send a Private message via

index.php?option=com_uddeim&task=new&recip=<id>

This method is used in Kunena if you want to use the button below user avatar in forum to directly send a message. Problem lies with function uddeIMdrawWriteform which creates the form for a new message. $recipname is read from Joomla user base and is already properly coded. Recoding it with htmlentities destroys the proper coding of special chars and thus the recipient username is wrong.

Trying to send such a new private message fails.
