Hi, Stephan,

You are mixing up several different problems and you are not being very
clear about them. Moreover, all of them are probably configuration errors.

The first issue you have named, namely PmWikiTr.SayfaBa�lant�s� being
unreadable from your server, is probably not related to PmWiki. If you
want help, you should at least mention what software you are using to
download files from your server.

On the other hand, not all browsers behave well with uft-8 characters in
URLs, so you could consider leaving the page names in ascii encoding and
using the (:title ...:) directive (or (:title-tr ...:), (:title-de ...:)
etc. directives, if you are using the MultiLanguageViews recipe).

The ?userlang=tr parameter is not used by PmWiki core, so you should tell
us the versions of the recipe(s) you are running.

In fact, ?userlang=tr showing a blank page might be related to 'Suchen' in
the right sidebar being untranslated: most probably you have some PHP
syntax errors and some general configuration problems in your config.php
file. You should check your server's error logs and show us at least the
multilanguage-related sections of your config.php file.
