This is precisely how I do it, but would appreciate 1 search to cover all portals.

I would, also. I think a search on the Logos web site should give the option to search Vyrso (E-books). (I don't think that should be available on the Vyrso site since that might be confusing.)

I agree that it can be frustrating to have to head to different sites to search for products (vyrso, noet, logos). At the same time, I would not want to go to the Logos store and have to sort through tons of novels when I am searching for academic products. So whichever way the ability to search from logos.com is done, it should be done intelligently so as to allow users to search what they want and leave out what they don't want. Perhaps sorting categories will do the trick?

You can do this. I do it by having a web chat with sales. I've even been able to combine Logos and Vyrso orders this way too with a coupon. You're right though that store credit can't be used online with Vyrso. Thanks for all your money saving emails.

I know this is possible. I'd really prefer to be able to do that at checkout though.

In both FL's site + Vyrso, I am forever changing show to 60.  It should always be 60.  Or 100, etc.

I will know when something I am searching for has generated sufficient hits, so show 3 score or more.

Multiple times a day I change the show to 60 + am vastly tired of doing so.

Will FL add cross-site search results? It's not really practical to expect customers to repeat a search on two or three sites. I will search Logos for a book, but often forget to search Vyrso (and have never searched ...

I would second this and the request to have visit titles in the store front for the faithlife app. I am encouraging my whole church to use the app. We also have a group going through the love Dare. They cannot get the book in the store from the app. Having to go to another website means lost sales when they can just get the book in their Kindle or Google app.

I can feel your pain! Tongue Tied

In the meantime... Simply create a bookmark with the preferences you want. For example: https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=price%3A%5B0+TO+7.99%5D+-title%3Asampler&unlocked=no&start=&sort=pricelo&pageSize=60 

That link will show you 60 results, only books you don't own, none with the word "sampler" in the title, sorted by price (low to high).

I got you a sale today in the forums from a member trying to convert a Kindle resource via PBB... the user didn't know it was on Vyrso.

One of the interesting questions if searches are consolidated is what would become of sorting categories in the store: those of vyrso and those of logos differ quite a bit and it would impractical to simply consolidate the two lists of categories (the list would be too long).

I got this off the forums a while ago but for PC I make a bookmark and paste this in the URL spot

javascript:void(q=prompt('Logos/Noet/EbooksNoet/Vyrso%20Multi-Search:',getSelection()));if(q)%20%7B%20location.href='https://logos.com/products/search?q='%20+%20escape(q)%20+%20'&unlocked=no';%20window.open('https://ebooks.noet.com/search?query='%20+%20escape(q)%20+%20'&unlocked=no');%20window.open('https://noet.com/search?query='%20+%20escape(q)%20+%20'&unlocked=no');%20window.open('https://vyrso.com/products/search?q='%20+%20escape(q)%20+%20'&unlocked=no');%20%20%7D

One of the best ideas I've heard in a long time. AND it would likely generate extra sales for FL. Just think about how many people probably give up after a Logos.com search, without knowing their desired product could be/is available on Vyrso.

For my part, I would appreciate an easy way to screen all fiction out of my searches on Vyrso.

That would be good. However, for such filter to work properly, the individual resources need to be tagged as fiction accordingly.

But maybe this has been messed up by the publishers... There are only a few, but notable, cases of mis-labelling.

Are you sure that book is mis-labelled?

This sounds really awesome. I'm excited! Vyrso... er Faithlife Ebooks is headed for growth!

If there's going to be a major update to the Vyrso API as well, I'd really appreciate to know about this a couple of days ahead of time, so that I can adapt my autodiscovery scripts for eBook freebies and ebook deals. There are a couple of hundred recipients to whom the scripts send out messages, and who don't want to miss any free books :-)

Is Noet Ebooks going to be revamped as well?

Thanks for the encouragement! We're excited to be bringing more life into the Vyrso universe. As of now, Noet Ebooks won't be getting any modifications. For the Vyrso API, I'll have to look into that with someone from our production team and get back to you. Thanks!

As a subscriber to Jan's unofficial site, I concur that his site is a great way to drive traffic to the Faithlife eBooks store!!

Hi Jan,

Just so you know, I haven't forgotten about this request. I'm still looking for a good answer for you on this, and I'll let you know as soon as I've heard something from our developers. Thanks for your patience!
