Capital initial letter in surnames

Recommended Posts

Arne Storset

Searching for persons does not work if the last name is not written with capital initial letter. I have tried to find a solution in the settings, but can't find any. Thanks for any suggestions! See https://storset.no/genealogy .

Go to your site's cPanel and find phpMyAdmin - then look at the tables in the database and see what the collation is set to.

It should end in _ci - case insensitive - but if it doesn't, that is the problem.

You can use the Operations tab in phpMyAdmin to change the collation to something that ends in _ci

Thanks, Roger, for your expert help! My son, Rolf Anders, helped to modify one of the database tables, and now the name search is case insensitive.
