IIS Chinese Tag Permalink | BOSSMA.CN | iis


When using WordPress under IIS, if the Url path contains Chinese, the page cannot be found or a 404 error will be prompted when accessing.

This plugin is used to solve this problem.

The last update of this plugin was in 2011. After more than 7 years, I saw that many users are still using it. So I tested it on the latest version 4.9.8 and found that it can still solve the problem of Chinese in the Url path ( If you do not use this plug-in, the URL path contains Chinese and the page still cannot be found). At the same time, I was delighted to find that there is no need to deal with the Url code when paging separately (the test environment is Win10+IIS10), but in order to be compatible with the lower version of WP, the relevant code is still reserved.

In the current test, this plug-in can adapt to the situation where index.php is included in the Url path. For example, the structure of the permalink is: /index.php/%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/, If you want to remove index.php, you need to install a URL rewriting plugin for IIS.


  1. In the WordPress management background plugin management, enter “install plugin”, search for “iis chinese tag permalink”, find this plugin to install and enable it; or download and upload it to the “/wp-content/plugins/” directory; then it can support Chinese NS.
  2. If you want to remove the index.php in the Url, you still need to install the URL rewrite module on IIS. In the previous version, it is recommended to use WordPress URL Rewrite, but this is no longer found. It is recommended to use the one provided by Microsoft:
    https://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/url-rewrite#additionalDownloads After
    installation, add the rewritten configuration to the web.config in the root directory of the website:
