I am doing a very simple search on my DB using acts_as_ferret. I put this in my "Venue" model: acts_as_ferret :fields => [:name, :city] And this is in my controller search action: @t = Venue.find_by_contents(params[:search]+'~') and then I just render the results. render :text => @t.to_json, :success => true, :status => :ok If I run a quick test: http://localhost:3000/venue/list?search=The I see in my log that the proper query "The~" is being executed on the index. However, I get no results. I definitely have a few "Venues" with the word "The" in the name field. Since this is a very simple search and acts_as_ferret is used quite a bit, I tried rebuilding the index to see if it was corrupted....no dice Any ideas? Thanks!
