Threadloom Community Search (TCS) is now available for forum owners through our Early Access program. It is currently compatible with vBulletin 4.2.x and XenForo 1.5.5 or higher.
I’m pleased to announce that earlier this week, we launched Threadloom Community Search (TCS) on our first XenForo customer, TwinStuff.com. TwinStuff is a family-friendly forum that hosts discussions about everything related to twins. Now, when you search on the site, you’ll get all of the benefits of TCS, including improved search quality, forum filters, and fast forum-specific restricts.
A few months ago, we launched Threadloom Community Search on our first partner site, BabyBargains.com. My wife and I have been fans of BabyBargains.com since joining the forum years ago while expecting our first child. Because I know firsthand what a valuable resource BabyBargains.com is, I’m excited to share data from our launch.
Several friends asked me recently why I started Threadloom. This isn’t easy to answer in a blog post because there were many reasons; and the problem with talking about any single reason is that it implicitly conveys priority. But you know how these things work — it’s a lot to ask even a good friend to watch the History Channel with you. So I decided to talk about one reason that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately: the value of community.
