Umlaut Encoding for POST Requests


The search does not return any (or less) results when searching for a search term that contains umlauts when using POST to submit the search form. With GET everything works as expected.


Make sure to add the enctype attribute to the form tag.


<form action="${space.url}/search" method="POST" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
    <input type="text" autocomplete="off" name="q" value="$!searchRequest.queryString" />
    <button type="submit">Search</button>
