When entering a search for an item name on the main EverQuest tab of the Magelo website in the search box at the top where it says "Database", sometimes it fails to find the item, depending on how one enters the search.

For example, for the following new item in the database as of a few hours ago:

Bow of Soulpiercing

If I enter the search with a lowercase "b" and "s", as in "bow of soulpiercing" then it fails to find the item.
If I enter its full name with correct capitalization "Bow of Soulpiercing" it succeeds.
If I enter "bow of soul" (all lowercase) it fails.
If I enter "Bow of soul" (first letter uppercase, everything else lowercase) it succeeds.

There may be some capitalization-related issues with the search, or something else may be going on.

For reference here are links to the searches that work and do not work:

Works:

https://eq.magelo.com/quick_search.jspa?keyword=Bow+of+soul
https://eq.magelo.com/quick_search.jspa?keyword=Bow+of+Soulpiercing

Does not work:

https://eq.magelo.com/quick_search.jspa?keyword=bow+of+soul
https://eq.magelo.com/quick_search.jspa?keyword=bow+of+soulpiercing

Thank you.

Hello Jelan.

Thank you for looking into this.

About 3 or 5 days after I posted my message about this issue, all the searches that were failing started to work again. This was a few days before your reply. All the searches in my first message are currently still working. Perhaps this may help to investigate why the searches were not working in the first few days after the new item was posted.
