[EP-tech] Antwort: Search by creators name not working when name has an apostrophe, e.g. O'Brien


put the family name into double quotes in the search field: "O'Brien" or
"O'Brien", Walter

Our help for the creator field says: Enter a name or names to search for.
Either the family name, or the family name followed by a comma and the
first name or initial. Names with spaces must be surrounded with double
quotes, eg. "van Damme, J". To search for two initials, add a full stop
after the first initial, eg. Auer, J.A

Hi All,

I have looked back through the email list, and checked current issues, and
couldn?t find any mention of this problem?

Within our repository, searching for any surnames that contain an
apostrophe, results in no matches?

Decided to check it in demoprints, added a new item, with two new creators.

Walter O'Brien
Connor O'Shea

Made the item live, but when I searched (via advanced search) for the name
O'Brien  (all of), it didn?t show up.

Then I refined it and searched for O'Brien and Notley (any of), and it then
did show up? (but this doesn?t work on our site)

So I?m lost as to what?s going on?

Anyone got any ideas on where to look??
