Problems searching stuff

Hi,

I have problems searching csdb... if I type in (for example):

Xenon + <- xenon with trainers... I only get "no results" now.. have worked earlier?

Searching without + works however

I just found this:

Search for "dragons lair" and it will find 7 matches.

Search for "Dragon's lair" (with the ') and it will find much more - but will only show the first 25 matches.
Then choosing to show all 61 matching releases will fail because the search box will insert another ' - so the search string will be "Dragon''s lair" and cannot find anything.

confirmed, happens also searching Hunter's Moon and such with an ' in the name, you have to edit manually the resulting url removing the extra ' yourself

Quote: Using 'Schaefers' works, but only for SIDs. My guess would be that the PHP code was never properly set up to handle non-latin1 codepages.

Seems to work again but only if there is a handle resp HVSC folder with real name. If you enter Kimmel, you get nothing but SID paths and do not get to Red anymore, if you enter Ouwehand, you get Reyn Ouwehand

I thought impossible search for real name was due to DSGVO nonsene and killed intentionally together with all real info (birthdate, place, avatar etc)

That's an unfortunate side effect indeed, for normal users but not for mods apparently as I see his scener entry from the search, and quite useless to hide it because it's anyway visible in the sids entry. All this BS about real names not visible is only creating more troubles to legit users than anything.

Search is no longer triggered by the entry AKA fields. I am almost 100% sure that worked with the old server.

Searching for "ian", "ia" or "ic" kills the universe.. Dunno why... And no.. Don't try it. It hangs.
