Search function doesn't 'yield any results'

4 0 2

Hello Shopify Community!

I'm about to launch my store and am doing some final checks. I tested the search function but it doesn't yield any results for anything. I'm putting in exact product names and also trying words I know I have used as tags but every time it says 'Your search for _____ did not yield any results.'

Does anyone know if this is a normal issue or if there is just a technical issue today please? My site is password protected still, would that be an issue for any reason? I am using the Brooklyn theme.

Thanks so much,
