the thing i would actually really like, is how it used to be before...

anytime you search for anything it would show you next to the poster if it is in your collection, in your ISO list, or in your for sale...

there used to be a "C" "S" or "T" next to it and it would be colored in if you had checked it and it would allow you to modify it by clicking on it... i used that alot and that is really the thing i miss...

Can you bring back the previous search to the homepage....

This was an easier way to narrow your desired search:

Actually Evan, the new search does everything that the old one did and a LOT more. Really. It does.
Try playing with it. You can enter and band name, venue, city, year, artist name and search it - it'll bring back your results and (if need be) they can then be narrowed simply.

Added a new option to user preferences that will allow you to set the number of items on a page, like the search page.

i'll admit things are looking alot better..

couple minor things with the newest trades page. before they seemed to be in order of most recent added, now they seem to be in alphabetical order by day.. any way you guys could get this back the way it used to be?

also we used to have latest trades by band, artist, ect.. can this option also be reinstated? i.e. latest emek trades, latest pearl jam trades, by most recent added..

thanks!

I admit to being confused by these. Can you please provide the links to the pages you are referring to?

As to the latest trades by band and stuff.
The default sort order is by the latest once you select the availabiliy option.

the third table down on the left hand column allows you to sort by name, last added, etc etc. This is true for several of the search result pages.

nice feature. can we get this for the pages in "my collection," "ISO," "FS" etc, or is it just on search results?

Is it possible for the info on the "my page" to be set to a percent, size wise

The page looses continuity (sp?) having the forums and the collections pages fill the screen, but the portal page is all set to a specific size.

Only affects the new "green" pages.

It is the three column layout that makes doing % sizes ugly on most screens. What is your screen resolution? The pages are sized for 800x600. I have spent hours tweaking them. The fact that those things on the right move to the bottom is really a bonus for people with small screens.
