Improving search filters
« on: February 17, 2021, 01:55:47 pm »
I was wondering if there were any plans on improving search filters?

Right now it seems like you can only search by title, and you get ALL the results back from the search.  It would be really helpful if you could drill down the results by filtering for region and/or system etc.

If this is already possible, maybe I could suggest making it more intuitive?  I'm a new user here (like literally 24h old account if that), so sorry if I'm missing something really obvious here.

Thanks!

Alongside the standard search, there is also a more detailed Advanced Search which is easily accessible while hovering over the standard search menu. While the Advanced Search feature is still not perfect—as all searches must also include Item Name information—I personally find it most useful when narrowing down items among a category. That being said, the Browse feature is also useful in this regard.

That's awesome!  Thanks!  I'd been using the quick search.  ::)
