    Web Shop Updates needed

    SO, the Store is in serious need of a makeover.

    Most of the time when you search for something you get every other product showing up as well. For instance if I were to search for Starfinder, Any, Any, it will return DnD, PathFinder, et.al. and then other times it will appear to mostly work correctly.

    Being able to see what's on sell may well be more effective then seeing what the top sellers are.

    Filter of Starfinder, Any, Any works fine for me. What URL do you see in the browser after applying the search filter? This is what I see:
    Code:
    https://www.fantasygrounds.com/store/?sys=22&pub=-1&typ=-1&search=&sort=1
    Note the sys=22 value.

    You need to click the "search" button at the bottom of the filter window for it to apply, not the magnifying glass.

    I guess all the generic stuff is throwing me off, when I only expect to see Starfinder stuff there. Including the publisher narrows it down nicely enough. Okay, good enough. I still think sales should be better annotated like the "Top Sellers" are...

    If you subscribe to the newsletter it will provide links directly to all sale items. https://www.facebook.com/fantasygrou...0265896690345/
    If there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    I believe that the store lists by default:

    This weeks releases
    This weeks sale items
    All other products by (reverse) order of release

    The Search options will obviously affect that.

    I could be wrong... I dont hit the store that often.

    You might be wrong...

    When I go to the Store page, I see the two Bundle sales (D&D Essentials and D&D Classics) showing 15% and 20% off (but I think we always see bundles up there...)
    Right below that I see "Top Sellers", which may or may not include any sale items, depending on how well they are selling at the time, I imagine.
    Right below "Top Sellers", I see "Extend Your Fantasy Grounds Experience"...which lists items in an unknown order (when I go to page 2, it shows sort=1 in the URL), which may or may not have any sale items...right now I see 4 sale items half-way down the list of page 1.

    It's not an "unknown" order, it's the order damned listed in his post.

    The easiest way for us to assist you with this is to have you copy the URL from your search/filter and then paste it here.

    It's unknown when you look at the site is what I was getting at. There are no release dates listed that you could infer that from and there is no sort order listed. When you click on the Advanced Search dropdown one could easily assume that the sort orders listed there would only be applied to the search that you execute, rather than it showing the current sort order. The sort order in the URL, when it appears upon pagination changes, is ambiguous to the lay person, so there is no way to infer from that either unless you know what those values refer to.

    I guess what I am getting at, it's a very outdated design and implementation. IF you had a web developer on staff (that wasn't working on either FGC or FGU clients), it would make sense to modernize the look and feel of the store, to bring it up to 2019-ish design and functionality.
