Shorttimers Disease....

Between the box tsunami that is Harry Potter and the short-handedness resulting from vacations and "summeritis" UPS has been a zoo.
I'm tired of work and fearful of something happening in the next few days to botch the trip. I've still a zillion things to do.

7 days till I leave for Japan...
I just...

I know I really shouldn't go on about this...
...so I'll let this here imaginary grrrl do it.
Take it away Tomo...

3 I would say that's a bug, and Pixy should be alerted.

6 Aha.  It's working as designed.  It's just that there's a tiny flaw in the design.

Minx generates individual entry URLs from the post title, but to avoid generating invalid URLs it strips out anything other than the usual alphanumeric characters and allowed punctuation.  So accented letters and non-Latin characters won't be included in the URL.  If the entire title is in Japanese, it can't generate an individual entry URL at all.

Two ways to fix this.

1. In the options section for the post, you can manually update the post URL.
2. I can tweak the code so that in such a case, the system generates a numeric URL based on the post ID, like... so.  If you now edit and save the post, this should take effect.
