We’ve got some new features here at MovieSnobs, that were recently implemented.
New search results – The search engine we’ve got for our site was rewritten to include more results, and it’s more targeted to get you the information you’re looking for. Now, in addition to searching the reviews, the search will also give you results from our front-page posts, and our cast database.
User ratings – Now, when viewing a review of a movie on our site, you can add your own vote, based on what you thought. Along the left, in the “Review Info” box, you’ll see a “Your Vote?” section. Just click on the stars, based on your opinion. We’ll automatically save the information, and remember it during your visit, in case you forget. The average user rating will be displayed on the page, for others to see
Firefox/IE search plugin – I wrote a pretty basic Firefox/IE search plugin, to search our site. To install it, do the following:
Firefox – simply click the down pointing arrow next to the Google G (the default search engine), and select “Add MovieSnobs Search”. That’s it!
IE – click the down arrow next to the magnifying glass, then select “Add Search Providers”, then pick “MovieSnobs Search”. When the little window pops up, click the “Add Search Provider” button, and you’re done.
I’ve got some other plans in the works for other features. So, if there’s something you’d like to see the site do, that it doesn’t currently, drop a note in the comments, and let us know.
