Hey there, Fellow BiggerPocketeers! I'm excited to announce that we have improved our search experience to make it easier to find what you're looking for! 

Check it out!

The results categories are listed across the top, and the results themselves are viewed in a clean list below. Choose All results, or sort out by Members, Companies, Blog, Forums, Podcast, Webinars, or Marketplace.

Nice! I had a suggestion, but wasn't sure where the best place to post or start it. If we can hide/dismiss threads on the front feed page, like our inbox, then that would be very helpful. The reason I bring that up is there might be trending threads that I have already read, but I am no longer interested in following. The problem is it's so hot that it keep getting bumped to the top, but there might be new or interesting threads that are missed and left unanswered because it gets buried quickly by trending post or very general questions that have been answer multiple times or questions that can't be answered by others like, "HELP! Newbie here! Tell me what to do with my life!"

This looks great @Mindy Jensen .

Is this something you all can also do for the BP app as well? I typically use the app during the evenings.

For example: I’ve been looking for how to sign up for webinars on the app, but unfortunately I can’t find any easy way to get to the webinars.

This is great! Is there anything in the works to fix the job search page (or maybe it’s not broken, maybe I’m the only one having this problem?) when I try to narrow the results by my city or state it will return zero results, but I know there are posts for my city/state because I can find them if I pick through the posts manually. Not sure if anyone else is having this problem?

@Megan Clancy  I cant get it to work at all... nice shot of you with your Dave Clarks on  !!!

I'm not sure if anyone else is having this experience but when I use the Forums result category and sort by Latest, the results are dominated by member profiles rather than forum posts.  I used the search term Pittsburgh.
