To clarify, after you click the "search" button, you never see any entries or any message in the area below the field where you type your search query? If that is so, you may want to view our video that demonstrates exactly what should happen when you search for foods. Watching that will allow you to tell us exactly what isn't happening for you that should be happening. You can view the tutorial here: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/videos-detail
. The search function is detailed at approximately 0:45.
If you still aren't able to search for a food after viewing that, knowing what browser and version you are using, along with knowing if another browser shows a different result, may help us pinpoint the problem source.
