I did this: Choosed search from menu Picked up the advanced search Typed 2 letters each in first/lastname Changed from the dropdown from “sounds like” to “begins with” Clicked search The result of this is the labels “firstname” & “lastname” changed to a tag “begins” See the enclosed image (danish but gives a hint) Regards, Jamie Jaconelli admin and owner of a user customized version of kiwitrees (contains 3 family trees) macalter 8th November 2016 at 5:55 pm #7432 I’ve always seen (several generations of kiwitrees) this in advance search, just never questioned it as it did the search as expected. (Mine changes to EXACT as that’s mostly what I use advance for when searching name.) ----- [updated: 11 Jun 2021] MacOS: 10.15.7 (Catalina) Safari 14.0.3; Firefox 89.0 PHP 7.4 FastCGI Alter-Drukarsh connections... 3.3.8 <private> The Royals 3.3.8<royals.rbcsolutions.ca> The Gerrer Rebbes 3.3.8 <royals.rbcsolutions.ca/index.php?ged=rebbes> kiwi 8th November 2016 at 6:06 pm #7433 Wow, you are right – a very old bug!! Fortunately you just caught me before I packed up fro the day, and it’s an easy fix. From the attached zip folder replace the file kiwitrees/library/WT/Controller/Search.php Mine changes to EXACT… In fact the same bug would apply to BEGINS, EXACT, and CONTAINS. SOUNDEX was the only one working properly.
