I’m nearly done with the migration of 4900 products into a new magento install. The products all have visibility in catalog/search, are enabled, and belong to Default category as well as two other categories.
16 products contain “Ann” in their names, but searching “Ann” on the front end only brings up 4.
If I go to “Manage Products”, select one that isn’t showing, and save it *without changing anything*, it appears (after reindexing)
I went into the dB and did
update catalog_product_entity set updated_at=current_timestamp() ;
.. and reindexed again. No improvement.
What else does the reindexing process “check” to determine whether a product needs updating? Can it be forced?
