Red Model S. Baby boots. Cornet for sale. What do all of these forum searches have in common? They’re all better when you can search for images alongside posts. Today, I’m excited to share that Image Search is now available for all Threadloom customers.
Many forums host a WordPress blog or other resources on their site. Unfortunately, until now, there hasn’t been an integrated solution to search over blog and other content alongside your forum posts. Today, we’re launching Custom Search Tabs, which allows you to integrate content from your WordPress blog or other resources in your Threadloom search results.
Ever search for something on a forum and wish you could quickly drill into a specific category? Or see who the top posters are for that particular search and narrow the results instantly to the top three users' posts? Or easily view all sold or closed items based on a thread prefix?
Imagine if you searched for a topic on the Internet, and nothing came back? Or even worse, pages of results came back, but none of them were relevant? This sounds impossible with today’s modern search engines, yet it happens multiple times a day to 100s of millions of users of online forums.
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.
