Project description


This patch product is for downloaded filename become strange ascii code in muluti-byte languages on Plone

  • When downloading file with Japanese name, downloaded file has some strange ascii coded name.

  • I think we should get file name that shows in Plone page.

  • This happens on all Plone version. I think if the file is named with multi byte code, this strange ascii name shows up.

  • Please, look at attached file to fix this problem for IE and Firefox. Other browsers, we are still working on it.

c2.patch.filenamenormalizer Installation

  • When you’re reading this you have probably already run easy_install c2.patch.filenamenormalizer. Find out how to install setuptools (and EasyInstall) here:

  • Get pythonproducts and install it via:

    python install --home /path/to/instance

    into your Zope instance.

  • Create a file called c2.patch.filenamenormalizer-configure.zcml in the /path/to/instance/etc/package-includes directory. The file should only contain this:

    <include package="c2.patch.filenamenormalizer" />

Alternatively, if you are using zc.buildout and the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to manage your project, you can do this:

  • Add c2.patch.filenamenormalizer to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Tell the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe to install a ZCML slug:

    recipe = plone.recipe.zope2instance
    zcml =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    $ ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.
