Search is case senitive

    Hello,

    I see the search in BP (the one in the header) is case sensitive. I would like to change it so it isn’t case sensitive.

    Does anyone know what file the search uses?

    Thanks,

    oldskoo1! Howdy partner.

    Ok. in bp we have the ability to search blogs, groups and members.

    /mu-plugins/bp-blogs/bp-blogs-classes.php search_blogs()

    /mu-plugins/bp-groups/bp-groups-classes.php search_groups()

    /mu-plugins/bp-friends/bp-friends-classes.php search_users()

    In all cases you’ll probably have to uppercase or lowercase the search term $filter and the field(s) in the sql statement itself.

    strtolower($filter) then something like:

    WHERE LOWER(value) LIKE $filter

    I don’t think I’ve ever used the bp search stuff. Thanks for finding this. :) I created a ticket on this: http://trac.buddypress.org/ticket/570

    Search should be case insensitive.

    bp can’t have case insensitive searches built into the core oldskoo1. unicode. Andy only fixed part of that ticket and I wondered why till just now. It occurred to me that we use unicode. Case conversions are language dependent. php up/low fns for strings trash unicode strings.

    You can do that kind of thing but bp can’t release something that doesn’t adhere to localization possibilities.

    No worries – the hack is easy enough :)

    Thanks for letting me know

    cheers
