Thanks so much Natalie. So is the launch happening on 1 February (tomorrow) then?

Don't worry if you can't find anything out. For a day or two I could check for deals and free books manually, while I update the scripts.

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 totally agree with this. Looking forward to being able to do one search only across all the sites.

Yesto being able to search across all sites at once.

Hi!

The new site goes live later today. You'll find it at ebooks.faithlife.com. We'll be continuing to add features to it over the next few months, and I've made sure to add the suggestions from this thread to the list of potential additions.

Jan, if you can manually add deals as you figure out your scripts, that would be great. Sorry I wasn’t able to get an answer to you on those before the launch!

Enjoy the new site!

Will Vyrso auto-direct to the new site or will both be operational until you finalize the ebooks one?

It's live and they have a free book of the month promotion from Kirkdale: https://ebooks.faithlife.com/products/122911/undefended-discovering-god-when-your-guard-is-down

The &unlocked=no string doesn't seem to be working (yet) though when you search books.

Also sorting by Price (lowest first) has $ 0.00 and $ 0.99 intermixed.

Likewise cannot filter out Fiction, which could be done on Vyrso using:

-GenreGroup:*Fiction

It looks like auto-direct is already in place.

Great job! The new page looks good. And Faithlife Ebooks brand tells much more than the old Vyrso.

I just tried the site and the search engine seems to be less helpful than when it was Vyrso. I got a lot unwanted resources when searching on the names of various authors that were filtered out with Vyrso. Disappointing.

The "new" Faithlife Ebooks site is just a rebranded "Noet Ebooks" site that they have been using for some time now.

And yes, the search is inferior. Try searching for something in quotes, for instance, and you'll see that it doesn't respect the quotes. "John Piper" will give you three Piper titles and then starts with other authors, e.g., Adelaide Piper and John by Beth Moore.

Also, as already has been noted, there's no longer any way to filter out the books you already own.

It's disappointing that Faithlife didn't get this stuff working before they put this site up, especially since they were already using the same engine over at Noet Ebooks. I hope that they quickly fix these things.

Yes, the former vyrso site was much easier to search; hope to see improvement soon.

Who's clever enough to make this search for books on sale exclude fiction?

Thanks so much for all of your feedback! We are aware of the limitations of searching on the new site, and we are working to improve it. I've been taking down all of the feedback from this post and others, and I'll pass it along to our developers. Thanks for all the feedback on the site!

Paul, see this thread  for an answer to exclude fiction (great workaround, I didn't know this was possible with the new site!), then sort by savings.

Thanks I saw the suggestion and have bookmarked it.
