Search for text (accent insensitive)

Hi there, @pachocastillosr… just a thought here (and maybe not a good one), but maybe you could have a separate field where you store a normalized version of each name. I’m thinking some combination of a plugin like this one and maybe lowercasing all of the characters would produce a “clean” name to which you could compare newly-entered names. You would have to run a newly-entered name through the plugin and lowercase it in order to do the comparison to the clean names that are stored in your database, but it seems like it could all come together to produce a potential solution.

Hope this helps.

Best…
Mike
