How EXACTLY does Shopify compute handles for products and other objects??
This page - https://shopify.dev/docs/themes/liquid/reference/basics/handle - says, "By default, a handle is the object's title in lowercase with any spaces and special characters replaced by hyphens (-)." However, I have not found that to be the whole story.
I did some tests, and looked through the community posts, and there seem to be other rules in effect:
Original string: Example/Sample ö and ™ or ® and Hồng but not £ or € and--also á and ö are converted to a and o, also œ is converted
Resulting Handle: example-sample-o-and-™-or-®-and-hồng-but-not-or-and-also-a-and-o-are-converted-to-a-and-o-also-oe-is-converted
Could someone at Shopify post the actual algorithm (or code) that computes handles?
I think you misunderstood my comment! I'm also looking for same algo so I'm following your post
