If you're having trouble with the new mode, please check out the help section first. Then post here if you're still stuck. (I'll update that page periodically as problems are found.)
There is a brand new results format available. It fixes the two most common complains about Searchtempest - cities with 'no results found', and duplicate results because of the craigslist "here are some nearby results" 'feature'. You can read a bit more about how it works here.
To give it a try, click on the Options link at the top of the search or results page, then choose Enhanced under the results tab.
I hope you like it! Please take a moment to post here and let me know what you think. Whether you love it, have suggestions, or both, I'd like to hear your thoughts. Two things I'm working on right now are
- Give an indication of cities that have automatically closed due to zero results - most likely this will be an expandable or mouse-over list at the end
- Once the chosen search radius is reached (ie 250 miles, or whatever the user has selected), give the option to 'Expand Search', or some such, which would basically increase the search radius without the user having to start again from the beginning.
