Please don't assign issue to people without them telling you to do so.

Also, please state what you exactly you mean with "don't works".

Acronyms only work with one capital letter followed by some capital letters or numbers. By letter, we mean A to Z... So Blah(de fi ni tion) will produce Blah(de fi ni tion).

In your example, are "Россия" all capital letters in russian alphabet ?

#3 Updated by Александр Шестаков about 11 years ago

Yes, for example:

ru: РОССИЯ(Страна)

OK. It won't be easy to implement until we fully support Ruby 1.9, which comes with the right libraries to handle non-ASCII characters.

For the record, everything happens line 459 of lib/redcloth3.rb (maybe we'll be on RedCloth4 when we support Ruby 1.9...). Regex with Unicode selectors like "РОССИЯ".match(/^\p{Lu}+$/) should work on Ruby 1.9+ (PCRE lib is too old on Ruby 1.8.x)

Hello. This is my version of solving problem.

1. Add trigger to wiki_pages table:

-- Trigger: alex_wiki_pages_tolower on wiki_pages

-- DROP TRIGGER alex_wiki_pages_tolower ON wiki_pages;

CREATE TRIGGER alex_wiki_pages_tolower
  ON wiki_pages
  EXECUTE PROCEDURE alex_wiki_pages_tolower();

2.add trigger function to redmine postgresql database:

-- Function: alex_wiki_pages_tolower()

-- DROP FUNCTION alex_wiki_pages_tolower();

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION alex_wiki_pages_tolower()
  RETURNS trigger AS
return NEW;
  COST 100;
ALTER FUNCTION alex_wiki_pages_tolower() OWNER TO postgres;

So new pages will created in small leters, even if you taped in capital letters.
