We’ve been receiving a lot of emails asking for new features. We’re really thankful for everyone’s input. The majority of the requests have been for two features – a region specific search function and more custom links.
The custom links will most likely come first. We’ve already begun looking into various ways to accomplish this; at this point it’s just a matter of implementation. As we approach 400 themes, the last thing we want to do is modify each one to include more links. When this new feature comes, it will be available in the advanced panel of the preferences page. If you choose not to use it, your page will remain unchanged.
Most of our users come from the US. Here our search is simple – search the internet. In other regions, however, search engines gives users the ability to search specifically for pages in a given territory – “search pages from the UK” for example. As our usage expands in other countries, we’ve begun experimenting with this feature. We’re still in the early stages, but this feature will probably make it’s way onto the site after the new custom links.
We hear you, and we’re hard at work. Hang in there!
