Can't search for "Thing"!!!

Post by gwerhart0800 » Wed Oct 14, 2015 9:18 am

I wanted to search for any post on the Sparkfun Thing (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13231), but your search code has declared that "Thing" is a common word and is not searchable:

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: thing.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards.

Either fix your search code OR don't name a product with a name that is not searchable.

Very sorry about that. It's working now, fwiw.

The search box on the site or shop is working maybe, but the forum does not want to search for "thing" this very moment.

Absolutely correct, sorry for jumping to conclusions. That I can't promise a quick fix on, but a bug has been filed. Thanks for letting us know.

I went to change this, and it requires a reindexing of the database. I need to check if there are any better solutions to the problem. :-/

Re-indexed. Search for "Thing" to your heart's content.
