How to remove Accents (é,ç,ã,ò) in {{slug}}

Dear all, I have this in my config.yml:

slug: "{{slug}}"
    encoding: "ascii"
    clean_accents: true

But when my title is some like this (in PT-BR): “Doce de paçoca é bom!” I get this result on “doce-de-paçoca-é-bom”. Any possible to remove this automatically without creating a field named slug and doing manually?

I hate to disappoint you but I don’t think there’s a way without adding a custom field. There’s an open issue here:

I go to Slack, thanks for the link!

I cannot enter on slack, I don’t know why…

Hey there,

If you are a new user to the CMS, have you tried creating a new account? Take a look at the top right corner:

Also, as Tom said, there is an open issue for this and the Slack will not provide a different solution. However, it is a great place to chat CMS.

OK I will try, now I was trying to solve a question so I was trying to enter in Slack to do it.
