I discovered a strange problem in the search in the gallery.

I have several items saved in my favorites, and those are all still available. When I go to my favorites and then to the item, clicking on the "add to cart" button everything is fine.

BUT when I try to find those items in the gallery search nothing is being found. It does not matter if I use the complete item name or parts of it.

I wonder if dozens of cool items are waiting out there and can't be found?

If you like to test it try a search for "Tron". There should be a lightcycle as well as several versions of the "Bit", but the search says "0 items found".

Is there something I do wrong while searching, or is this a known problem, a software bug??

Where are you searching from? I searched from the home page and got this http://www.shapeways.com/gallery?mg%5Bsearch%5D%5Bcategories %5D=&mg%5Bsearch%5D%5Btext%5D=tron

I then searched again from this page and retrieved the same results

Ahhhh, got it - there was "newest" chosen from the drop down menue, and so all those itmes didn't show up. When "price" or "upload date" is chosen it works.

Stupid me... Embarassed
