[Name,fallback=] doesn't work if fallback is Unicode string

    I am sending newletters in Russian.

    The template


    doesn't work if I specify non-Latin (Unicode, specifically) string as fallback. The resulting template is simply left as is.

    This is extremely inconvenient and I would appreciate fixing this behaviour. I can't use Latin-based fallback strings, they will look weird from recipients' viewpoint.

    Example of Russian template tried


    (using Russian for 'subscriber')

    This happens because sendy uses str_replace to replace tags to fallbacks, and this function does not work properly with multibyte strings.

    Possible solution: migrate str_replace with preg_replace since there is no multibyte version of str_replace function, and preg_replace is the fastest workaround here in terms of performance.

    P.S. I believe there are also problems when a user specifies a multibyte value for the custom field.

    The Russian letters in fallback is still ignored. Any news on this issue? However if the value in additional field is in Russian it is substituted.

    Moreover the additional filed is not substituted if its name contains Russian letters.

    Do you have any plans for fixing this? Turns out, that we are unable to use the core functions for Russian language.

  • Same problem with Vietnamese. Do you have any plan to fix?
