Below we detail product updates for the Firstup platform (Web Experience) scheduled for release in April 2022.
Search Bar Updates (Web Experience)
We’ve made our search bar more easily and visually accessible on Web Experience, by reducing the amount of clicks to reach the search functionality!
What has changed?
- The header layout on Web
- Icons, search bar, logo, hamburger menu have been repositioned
- Clicking logo navigates back to community landing page
- Hamburger Menu
- Home link has been added to the hamburger menu for secondary access
- Added community secondary color to hamburger menu links on hover or when on the current page
- Search Functionality
- The search results return a heading (Search posts for “search term”) with the number of results found.
- A label will be added below the heading with the number of results found: “8 results found”.
- This will be the same functionality for all content types or filters (Posts, Channels, Directory, etc.) throughout the community experience.
