I'm having a problem with WordPress not finding all products (wp ecommerce) but just variations of products when you attempt to attach an image to a product in the media section of the backend. It's the popup 'find-posts' searchable box. This box should have pagination also but is this still lacking? Thanks

Your version of WordPress and WP e-commerce? Are you using the 'Add Media' button or the 'Manage Product Images' link? –  Stephen Feb 8 '13 at 2:09
WordPress 3.5.1 and wpec and I'm talking about in the media library where you 'attach' an image to a page, post, product etc...the product doesn't show just its variations when you search for it. Yea the product page itself has issues also but that could be another question. –  bvillebud Feb 8 '13 at 2:18
Can you test on a regular post and see if you are having similar issues? Aside from that you may need to enable debug mode and see if you're hitting any errors. –  Stephen Feb 8 '13 at 2:32
Given your description I'm not able to replicate it. Any additional information would be helpful. –  Stephen Feb 8 '13 at 2:45
Can you write up you findings as an answer? –  Stephen Feb 8 '13 at 14:50

If you can't find a product (wp ecommerce) when you try to attach an image to a product in the media library, likely the variations have a later date than their corresponding product and hence the product does not show in the list. The solution is to just make the date of the product itself after the variations and it should show up, or make them as late as you can so they show up since the attach post, page, product etc list is sorted by date (latest first).
