Search with upper and lower case

Search with upper and lower case was created by ericmuc
Hi,

I am testing first idea of searching in my website.

I realized, that a word with a upper letter at the beginning cannot be found if all letters are typed in with lower case.

How can I get a search with lower letters, which finds also words with upper letters? Can I add code somewhere?

Thanks, best regards
Eric

Searching what? Userlist searching shouldn't be case sensitive. You can see this working on our demosite below.

Hi,

I have a text field in a field group and can search with that. But I have to add for example "Innova" as exactly is filled in, "innova" doesn't work.

Searching field group fields is a different behavior. It's using MYSQL JSON functions, which might result in a case sensitive search. What is "Search crieteria" set to within your userlist under Parameters > Search. If set to "Simple Exact match: Only 'is' and ranges" change it to "Simple Any word match: Only 'any of' and ranges (WARNING: can be slow)" and retry.

Hi,

I tested this already before. Unfortunately it is case sensitive.

Is there any chance to get the search with the group fields case insensitive? Would be helpful for easier searching, I think.

I used already the Joomla search with your search plugin. Here my test works well, moreover I can use only party of the word and it is found with the standard search settings.

BUT: if the user has set searched data privacy to not public the Joomla search don't find the user, the search with the CB user list do and shows the profile without the data.

To find the user profile even with privacy settings to that search data with the Joomla search would also be helpful. Or can I do better setting in CB for this?

What do you mean?

Thanks, best regards
Eric

That would be the JSON MYSQL functions doing that. Will see if there is a possible workaround for a future release.

BUT: if the user has set searched data privacy to not public the Joomla search don't find the user

That's working as expected. The search shouldn't output users who you don't have permission to view.

, the search with the CB user list do and shows the profile without the data.

That's not working as expected and likely due to it being a field group. That would be a bug that needs to be fixed.
