The Dark Lord requested feedback in this topic, so here's mine:

I would like it to be easier to logout from RightStuf. As it stands I have to enter my password and go into my account to logout. Maybe it could be right next to the "sign in" button. Or, then again; maybe there's a good reason that the logout isn't available on the storefront.

The updated search is on the actual website, not the store. The two searches are completely separate.

I know it can be confusing.

The list/grid view is from the main website searches, not the ones that have the 1-800-338-6827 in the URL.

I believe I've found it. Use the search engine on Rightstuf's homepage and when you do, you should see two faded icons next to the word "Products".

Yea, I was reading it wrong as well when it was first posted. I was thinking store search and didn't test out the feature to see if that is what was happening.

Yep, for me as a geek it's a bit funny when searching for Spice & Wolf DVDs to have the
advanced search form nearly literally match 1:1 a SQL database query like
Quote:
SELECT * FROM 'products' WHERE 'title' LIKE "%spice%" AND 'media' = "DVD" AND 'adult' != "yes"

but most end users probably want a bit more "friendly" form where the backend just takes care
of the conversion...

(sorry if I offended any DB specialist by wrong use of quoting... ;-P )

edit: ugh, database/advanced search also needs an overhaul to correctly support DVD/Blu-Ray combo sets...
For ex. "Spice and Wolf Season 2 DVD/Blu-ray Complete Set" can't be found with "media = DVD", since it's only flagged Blu-Ray... frown

This is in the catalog / advanced search I take it.

There is a discrepancy in the two, and its a technology difference so I always use the main website search. I'll see if there's a way to tag it in 2 categories in the advanced search, tho.

If you haven't used the main site site, I highly recommend it. It is getting better and better. smile

That's a feature we never built out in the 15 or so years since I originally wrote that search engine.

As a workaround, I'd recommend putting either "blu" or "dvd" in the title portion of the search box, in addition to whatever keywords your using to search for the show.

While we haven't enabled a more advanced search form for the main site's search, this problem with that system doesn't exist. There's tons of (right now) hidden fields/etc. that you can use when searching to help refine your results - there should be more coming soon there.

If you're curious about the technical side of things, we're actually using Apache Lucene as the search engine for the "new" search. The "old" search is something I wrote myself many, many years ago. Neither are simple SQL queries.
