how can I get the full url parameter with the url-encoded values

?myParam=dummy%C3%B6%C3%A4%C3%BC

this is the decoded url:

?myParam=dummyöäü

if I use

$myText = urldecode(JFactory::getApplication()->input->get('myParam'));

the encoded or directly entered umlauts are missing in my var myText

Use string filter instead of the default cmd filter:

JFactory::getApplication()->input->get('myParam', '', 'string')

Or:

JFactory::getApplication()->input->getString('myParam')
  • what do you mean with default cmd filter? – cilap Sep 5 '18 at 11:06

    When no filter is specified, cmd is used. So $input->get('myParam') equals $input->get('myParam', null, 'cmd'). It strips out characters such as umlauts. – Sharky Sep 5 '18 at 11:33
