Casey and I have completed work on a cross-LibraryThing search system.
- Search is now available from every page.
- It searches one type (like works or authors) at a time, but always gives you result-counts for all types on the left. Click on the type to pivot off it instead.
- It’s blazingly fast (as vaneska wrote, “The speed of the search is just a little bit scary.”)
- It includes a number of elements not formerly searchable (or searchable well), like member reviews and words in tags.
- Tabs have been reorganized a bit. The search tab has been removed and the “More” tab moved left. The “Zeitgeist” tab has been removed. It will probably be available under “more,” from the home page and at the bottom of every page (like “about,” which was a tab once).
Find out more, and talk about it on Talk.
