I get the same thing.

In fact I copy pasted an exact item which I already saw as a review by name and it returned nothing in the search.

The search function is pretty naff.

Use Google, and add Jemsite to the search. Works far better.

Re: Searching on reviews is poor

It's a known bug, and we've been trying to get it resolved. In the meantime, just go to the comparison shopping section and find the product by clicking through the categories until you find it. Pain in the butt, but it's the only way for now.

I hope this gets fixed, too. It kinda discourages me to review, because I want my reviews to be with the rest for a product, to be fair. Google doesn't always do the trick either.

Re: Searching on reviews is poor

It shouldn't discourage anyone to review. When you go to post a review, you can narrow it down quite specifically.
