Trigger - Page URL condition - Arabic URL

Hello guys,

I’m adding a trigger (type: Pageview) to my Custom HTML Tag with condition:

Page URL “contains” كلمات

In both Live and Debug mode, the tag isn’t fired. I have tried to remove the condition and it worked.

What I’m trying to do is to fire this tag only on certain internal pages of the website, the website is in Arabic Language.كلمات/SOME-SONG-TITLE-HERE

So any internal page of type “كلمات” which means lyrics in English should fire this tag.
This is the current full page URL that I’m trying to test it on:

Not sure if the Arabic URL is causing the issue :neutral_face:

I tried to change the condition to “starts with” & “equals” nothing worked so far! any help would be appreciated! thank you.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that my Matomo installation is in English language if it helps.

I was able to find a work around, instead of copying the internal page name from the browser URL directly which shows as “كلمات” I copied the link into notepad first and took this instead “%D9%83%D9%84%D9%85%D8%A7%D8%AA”. Not sure if this is a right method to follow.
