Search is no longer insensitive to diacritics and letter variants

Mar 23, 2018 - permalink
In the previous version, for instance searching for "Caroline Bergoe" found also all instances of "Caroline Bergøe". The same with accented characters from names in French or Spanish, many people may not find online the properly accented names but people who know the real names may register them correctly.

Is there a way to restore this functionality? Searches may not be returning all the relevant results due to the change.

It does actually do this in most cases, but the ø was a character that wasn't being handled correctly. This is fixed now so "Bergøe" and "Bergoe" return the same results.

Let me know if there are other characters that aren't working correctly.
