It remembers the last search I did, so doesn't seem to be a cookie issue.

The zip distance search is fine, but I live near lake Michigan, so many results that are a very reasonable 100 miles away straight line, are in reality 800 miles and more in actual round trip driving distance, and that's why I prefer using the old method.

I'll post elsewhere, but this seemed the most relevant place for it.

This topic is for comments on the new mode. It should already remember your preferences, including whether you want to search by zip and distance or choose cities manually. If it's not, there's some sort of bug, on our end or yours. Please post the URL of the results page you're getting, over in the help section.. :)

This is a Great feature. I typically search 4 or 5 of the surrounding areas but ofen pass on goods that are located on the outskirts of these areas. This feature should automatically filters out these outskirt areas. Thanks!

I would like the zip/distance to not show cities or areas which do not have a return.

Bravo!!! This is great. I love the Zip/Distance mode. I saw nothing out of line. It worked well. I'm on board! Thanks. Keep it up.

Oh, I would suggest one thing. If the search is a given area yeilds no results, maybe best, or at least optional, to not have that area come up at all. I had plenty of simply blank frames. Even so, I'm excited to see this develpment.

Thanks. Glad you like it! As for not showing cities with no results, unfortunately this isn't possible at present. See the FAQ, other threads, or I think even earlier in this thread for details. ;)

You done good! It worked great for me. Now can you add something that lets you check for just new items added since a imputed date? So then I can just check for new things since the last time I checked? Might as well ask for everything! Keep up the good work!

Hi Bob,
I'd love to, but unfortunately I can't. See the FAQ for the details..

Which pop-ups? The only pop-up I'm aware of is the one mentioning my other site, http://www.hankshelper.com, which only comes up if you search for cars, and which you have the option to hide forever...
