A Search in Your Favorites Tab Answered

I always am favoriting new instructables to come back to later, and I have around 500 favorites by now. This poses a problem when going back to look through to find the one I want to view. If it is way at the beginning, it is hard to find. I end up just searching the site instead, trying to find it, but it would be more convenient if their was a "search your favorites" button under the "you" page in the "favorites" category.

Other than that minor suggestion to the site's layout, I love the new layout!

i agree, although i believe a more advanced search system to filter certain categories, authors, and of course favorites would be better suited for the site

Love this idea! Another thought is to make your favorites page look like the forum. A small icon pic on the left with the name of the ible to the right with the authors name. By listing it this way you could have a easy to scroll thru list, instead of having to click through lots of different "pages" with larger icons. Don't think it would be hard to pull off. Just a thought.

You know that it would also be a good idea for the same thing when looking at a authors page for their ibles too. I can't tell you how many times I've scrolled through Kiteman's ibles just to find the one I'm looking for. Just another thought that hit me just now.
