search (for the artists)

Grossstadtgeflüster

does not return any results for artists, but

search for

Grossstadtgefl

does
search4umlaut.png
no search result
anyway shortening a searchterm, is not convenience or expected by the users. and confusing too :-)


Strangely, sometimes (as is not reproducable, but happens quite often) I get very confusing search results, when searching for Grossstadtgeflüster or other names with special chars.

most common answer from madsonic:
Grossstadtgeflüster-no-result.png
search will not throw any results
irritating answers from madsonic are:
Grossstadtgeflüster-too-much-strange-or-wrong-results1.png
seach will throw out "useless" results
btw: when madsonic throws out that "wrongly" result-list, it will also find correct results when a song contains Grossstadtgeflüster.
unfortunately, I cannot add more than 3 screenshots per posting.

what print it out of you type 'locale' with the madsonic user in?
it need to be an UNTF8 locale set.
you can do that with 'dpkg-reconfigure locales'
That will fix the Webview.

But some apps work MP3-Tag Based. There is no solution right now.

all services (with webgui) on my nas work great and have no problem with special chars or german umlauts. Everything is set up to UTF8.

Hi there,

with next Madsonic release upgrade to new Apache Lucene 6.4.2 implementation is planed.

search queries like ...

Code: Select all

*DC^2 *mod* Punk^4
or

Code: Select all
