I have been unable to successfully use the search function on the Edit Listings screen to locate any ads, it always has no hits. It is not clear if this is case-sensitive or not.

Hi verta,

Can you be more specific?

Were you trying to search on title terms, detail terms, both? I've not witnessed this behavior in through the current one (since I tested that prior to release each time). Can you point me a specific example on your site?

Can you reproduce it on

It might be the title term length. We have several TV ads - there is the string "TV" in the title and searching with TV or tv yields no hits. If I search for longer words, like the brand, the search works.

I can send a URL over email, but I can't post it here as the site is not launched.

I can duplicate this on, using the search word 'we' - this ad has the word in it,
but searching for the word shows no results.

If there's a minimum word length, that's OK, but I guess it would be nice to A) put that on the screen and B) handle that case with a screen error, like your search term was too short, maybe.
