Transliteration from Cyrillic to Latin

  1. Is it possible to use a transliteration of the titles in the
    address bar of browser? Since I intend to write in Russian, would like
    to link to my posts meet the standards. Transliteration from Cyrillic
    to Latin once provided your service?

    The blog I need help with is anarchofront.wordpress.com.

  2. On site ning.com, for example, initially implemented a transliteration of Cyrillic titles in Latin page address. Thus there are very few Russian-speaking communities, but the transliteration is supported. Possibility transliterated titles in the browser address bar would attract a much larger number of Russian-speaking users for wordpress.com

  3. Using your native language is totally standards-compliant and we haven't encountered any problems with that.

    The only inconvenience I have with cyrillic URLs is that when you send it to friends it is sometimes seen with a lot of % characters. You can alleviate that by using the sort link: Admin Bar → Blog Info → Get Shortlink

  4. Then why the Russian blogger who work with platform wordpress.org, prefer to install on their blogs modules to transliteration, such http://mywordpress.ru/plugins/rustolat/? If all is well, then this plugin would be useless. I applied to the support service, they advised me to edit the URL manually each time. You advise me to use shortlinks. But this means that every time I must open the editing page and do something with my hands. Why I have no choice, I used to like http://example.wordpress.com/blog/6/ or links with transliteration? Why nobody says that this is good advice, and should think about this? Instead of the normal response I hear that does not give users the choice is a very good solution.

    When I ask my friends if they're willing to migrate to wordpress.com, they tell me that there is no translit options. If they want to do blog entries through e-mail, then they will not open the web interface and fix links with his hands. After that, you still believe that no problem and everything is normal?

  5. I found a link on this forum a year ago, where the user asks the same question that I ask: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/change-all-permalinks-via-xml-rpc-api/ When he asked no one in reply. You need to see another ten people who would say the same? Write to me, what can I do, and I will try to help.
