Hello, I love these marketplaces, but there’s one thing that’s lacking which is the search function.

The search function honestly needs to be updated. If we take a look at a site such as iconfinder(.com), one of the great things their search allows your to do is filter based off of size, colour etc. and I feel that graphic river especially could deal with that.

The search function is okay, but it’s pretty basic and would be awesome to get some useful tools (such as size, a budget pick (between $2-$5)) and so on so fourth.

Photodune is an example of a moderately-okay search engine, but it’s still basic.

What do you think about this idea? Please leave a comment below (official dev feedback would be greatly appreciated!)

I think there is something in the works for that…

Can’t remember who said it, but it was mentioned that a search similar to the Photodune search.

They definetly need to make change to search engine. Make it reliable and fast.

All those piles of incoming new items are sinking in a vast ocean.. without being noticed. And just because of bad search engine.

Awesome, that’s good news.

I just hope it’s top priority, because as an author and buyer, it can be frustrating when looking for that specific item and not being able to find it due to a weak search engine.
