[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Strange search bug in ArchivesSpace staff mode

I'm going to jump in here and say I've noticed something strange like this happening with our version of 1.1.0. For us it's a specific resource identifier number, and it only happens when I use the "Search All Records" functionality.

The resource record opens up completely fine, and I can use the same search string in the filter by text box in the browse resources functionality without any issue. It seems to be an isolated issue with just this specific string in the search all records option.

Same as Angela, this is specifically on the staff portion of the site, the public side returns search results completely fine.

Hi Angela,

This is strange. I think the issue is that you're getting a record in your result set that has an issue.

Would it be possible for you to send me a zipped up copy of your database? I can look at it and see where the problem is...

This is incredibly bizarre, but whenever I search the word "albums" in the staff interface of ArchivesSpace, I get an error message, "We're sorry, but something went wrong." This happens consistently with this particular search.

I have no problem searching the word "album" (singular). It does not matter if I search the word "albums" with or without quotation marks, or with or without other search terms. If that word is there, I get the error. I have no trouble searching "albums" in the public interface; this bug is only in the staff interface. I have not (yet?) seen this happen with other search terms.

Has anyone else encountered a similar problem?

We are on version 1.1.0.
