Won't Fix [Workaroundable] unable to rename phrase title

    I can't save a already existing phrase, where i only changed some small chars to big chars in the title. (sorry don't know how it's called in english:D )

    For example:

    old phrasename: ragtek_NUNS_conversation_subject
    new phrasename: ragtek_nuns_conversation_subject

    errror: Phrase titles must be unique in a language. The specified phrase is already in use.

    i think it's because the datawriter checks only if the title exists and it doesn't care of small/big chars

    for the datawriter FOO is equal to foo so it's duplicate and it throws the error that it's not equal:(

    protected function _preSave()
            if (
                if (
    $this->isChanged('title') || $this->isChanged('language_id'))
    $existing $this->_getPhraseModel()->getPhraseInLanguageByTitle($this->get('title'), $this->get('language_id'));
                    if (
    $this->error(new XenForo_Phrase('phrase_titles_must_be_unique_in_language'), 'title');

    I presume this is because phrase titles are case agnostic.

    I suppose a workaround would be to rename the original phrase to something different and then once again with the upper case characters.

    case agnostic
    that's what i was searching for, thx:)

    i wish i wouldn't think so complicated^^
    instead of doing this, i started debugging and searching for the problem^^

    This can be worked around, though it introduces possibilities of weird behaviors with MySQL, particularly related to collations. The safest thing is to leave it as is, and do the a->b->A workaround.
