@gaderson Search is temporarily not working with the sort filters. We hope to have this fixed sometime this week.

Sure you not got Agon mixed up with eBay in that rant?
I only comment as I have had no problem with sending emails and tel numbers via messaging here and getting them sent to me, including this week?
Now Ebay heck yes they are "looking after us" lol.
Do not think it has sunk to that here yet, at least not as of Tuesday of last week!
Pretty F___cked up I'll say.But when you figure how they try to retard sales by not allowing phone#'s or emails between members you knew whoever does their software will continue to F---ck up.Pretty lame.I like it when they say its for security as if they know more about deals than we do........F----cking lightweights.........cheers,Bob
One of the ways search doesn't work as before is with standard initials - ie BAT, B&W (even though if you enter Bowers & Wilkins the brand shows up as 'B&W (Bowers & Wilkins)'.
I used to be able to double click in the search box and about 6 brands that I commonly searched for would show up and I could just pick one of those. That's gone.
The "new look" is obviously the creation of some techie that knows nothing about audio equipment or sales. The "spotlighted" equipment is displayed on a smaller footprint and disregards the sellers' efforts to create an appealing initial impression of the equipment that they are selling.
The best bet is to go back to the earlier format and help the technie find new duties in the administration department, human resources or indoor plumbing maintenance.
It is obviously not I who has questions on how to use is it?
Did you send email out to ALL members, not just the ones who had reached out to customer support?
But as you obviously do not seem to understand that I and others here have been assisting certain confused members on how to get round the new system I will refrain from providing further assistance.
Have a great day.
There is a very simple fix. It should take one minute by the web developer. Just change the default setting in the code to automatically display the ’classic’ view first. In turn, the ’grid’ view becomes optional. In other words, it will be the reverse of the current functionality.
It appears that after spending all that money on the new skin, Audiogon still wishes to present a ’fresh’ look. But, Ebay seems to be doing okay with the same classic view that it’s had forever.
Macguy. It IS optional.
When you perform a search over on right hand side you will see a little box next to the drop down for ending soonest, high to low selection etc.
Click that box, give u option for grid or classic view.Pick your poison.
That’s it, done, only need do it once, site remembers by cookies your choice.
As far as I aware the way to search has never changed and is exactly as you say.
My main issue was pretty simple but essential.
It did not matter how many times i hit enter on my keyboard nothing would happen.
Not sure when you tried it but I can state as of 5 minutes ago it is NOW working, I can assure you after the "fix" of Friday it most definitely was NOT working.
Maybe my bad for not having tested it again this morning before I replied here.
Seems like Admin are slowly and surely putting the pieces back together again.
I can’t seem to search by zip code anymore
Near the upper left of the Audiogon home page point to "Categories," then click on either an individual category or on "Browse All Categories" in the drop-down menu that will appear. Near the bottom of the menu that will then appear on the left click the word "change" that is next to the words "zip code." How to proceed from there should be self-evident, and works for me.
both zip search and price range search are awol right now and has been reported to admin multiple times.
Regarding price range search, in the menu on the left that I referred to above just enter min and max prices in the corresponding boxes and hit "enter."
Not quite sure what you are all missing right now?
It was changed back on Friday and for the most part is near identical to previous IF you choose the classic view which you ONLY need to do once.
Yes a few search functions are , well NON functional, but hopefully they will be fixed.
If you are unsure why you still have grid view this is what you need to do.
launch the agon site.
search for something, anything really!
when results pop up on the right hand side next to your drop down choice for ending soon, high to low low to high etc is another little box.
Click on it and gives you the option for classic view or grid view.
Choose classic view
That is it, site remembers your choice via cookies
It really IS that simple
Try it before bitching any further please!
New site is an Abomination--pure and simple.You went from First to Worst
Hard to read, takes more time, frustrating, hate looking at it--
I'd rather go back to the late 70's green-screen listings than look at the "new" agon.
Looking at a'gon alternatives--its that bad.
Fix it--Your customers are not happy
Since I was one of the intense critics of the new format, I must now give Audiogon credit for restoring list view as an option and apparently making it sticky.
I'm not sure why or how ANYONE at Audiogon thought the change to portholes and limited search results was in any way furthering the goal of bringing buyers and sellers together in one convenient spot, but it seems they have seen the error of their ways in the face of relentless and as far as I can tell, unanimous criticism.
For the last however number of years, I browsed Audiogon on an almost daily basis. It was a habit, if I'm being honest.
That browsing came to an end this week. Other than 2 days after the rollout, where I tried, unsuccessfully, to search for gear I'm interested in, I didn't bother.
Now that the announcement was made restoring the ability to use the search function as it worked before (or just actually work), I'll have to see if I resume visiting Audiogon as often as I used to. It bothers me that people at Audiogon considered the changes that were implemented as a positive or improvement. What did they see that myself and the people in this thread didn't?
Thank you all for your feedback on our latest site update. We spent the week addressing technical glitches that affected filtering and browsing. In addition, search/browsing pages have been simplified based on your feedback. With these patches making search and browse stable, we are able to release the ability to choose between the Classic View you are used to and the new Grid View. Simply navigate to any search/browse page and click the View drop-down next to the Sort By Preferences to switch between the two. Your preference will be set via cookies; you will not be required to make the change every time you log in.
