Renske | 85 comments The search function for the awards seems to have become sensitive for the use of capitals. I think that is really not practical, when it makes a difference if you search for 'book' or 'Book'.

That's definitely a bug. I'll report it for you.

Vicky (vnorthw) | 803 comments I mentioned here that I was having the same problem with an X in an ISBN having to be capitalized.

Could be related.

Carin | 1 comments I have not been able to get the search function to bring back a result except when using the entire name of the award. It won't give me any results with a partial name (or keyword).


message 5: by Renske (new)

Renske | 85 comments As this problem is not yet solved, is there something known how long it will take?

I have no problems with searching with a part of an award name, as long the capitals are correct.

Chris (chrisnolanca) | 9 comments Just came across this myself. Tried

and couldn't come up with anything.

Did try http://www.goodreads.com/award?utf8=%...

Did return what I was looking for.
