I was trying to add the keyword "character-says-bury-the-lede" to an episode. I copied it from the find keyword search (as you can see by clicking the link). There are 4 instances of this keyword but when I entered it on a new feature, I get this:


Why didn't it find the known keyword?

There are no keywords past Body F.....
Body-Gone-Missing, Body-Gushing-Blood, Etc.
No Bu, as in Butt, Busy, Burner, Etc
No By, as in Bye Bye, Byzantine, Etc

While it's true that not all keywords appear in the field browser, that may not explain why other keywords are not recognized by the update form. character-says-bury-the-lede does appear under C.

The truncated keyword lists were discussed here:

I'll betcha the last time that keyword was used was prior to the new system implementation.
Once you check it off as a " Add this as a new keyword", it won't happen again.

What are you betting because you are wrong. I entered this keyword last year and you can see all the titles are recent. (I'm pretty sure I entered it for The Post which is about newspapers to begin with and I was surprised it didn't already exist.)

Hi Adrian,

Thanks for your post.

Can you confirm if adding the keyword as a new works as expected?

Yes, adding it as new worked and now there are 5 titles with character-says-bury-the-lede. Just odd that it doesn't show up in the list of possibilities since it is already a keyword.

I thought this was a known bug, one that has been around for a long time.
