OnBeforeGetSafeUrlPart removed in K13

CSS Team asked on March 10, 2021 12:57

I noticed that URLHelper.OnBeforeGetSafeUrlPart was removed in K13 (link). We used it to reformat vowels, e.g. ö to oe, ü to ue. Does anyone know how to accomplish this now?

KX13 already handles diacritics out of the box in some scenarios (see here).

Like Dmitry has suggested you can hook into an event to handle it yourself, but you could also look at the OnBeforeRemoveDiacritics event mentioned in the documentation to change the default behaviour.

Were you using this when creating new pages? If so, my best guess would be to amend the document name (as URL slug should be based on it) before inserting a new document, in a custom module:

protected override void OnInit()

    DocumentEvents.Insert.Before += InsertOnBefore;

private void InsertOnBefore(object sender, DocumentEventArgs e)
    e.Node.DocumentName = e.Node.DocumentName.Replace("ö", "oe");

I haven't tested it myself, but hope it should work.

Custom handling of diacritics it is then. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
