Thanks plus dreaming of facet/filter for fiction so can easily exclude: Fiction, Juvenile Fiction, Young Adult Fiction, ...

Yes! I l would love to see KS4J's suggestion implemented.

Ben, can we add that to the proposal/specs please?

Hi All,

Thank you all so much for your feedback!

We have decided to temporarily roll this back until we can have better search faceting/filtering in place.

Pre-pub Faithlife eBooks have managed to sneak in. It’s not a problem — to me at least — but wanted to make sure you were aware.

Thanks for letting me know, Mark.

When we made the existing products live, we also added functionality so that new ebook products would automatically show up on logos.com. Rolling that back will take a bit more time.

Pre-pub is actually useful in my opinion. The core of the website is to drive sales not hinder them. Don't shoot yourself in the foot. Besides most people do want to know what's coming out too. Library building is an anticipatory process.

Everything is working fine from my perspective.  No need for any more cleanup in my opinion. 

Thanks for your team’s work on this!

May I suggest that not only should it be possible to exclude Fiction (specifically) from Logos.com search results, but that that option should be toggled by default?

I appreciate this because if I've searched for a title that FL doesn't sell, chances are THIS would be the area I would find out if it has finally arrived - in PrePub or New Releases, or whatnot. I won't check back for that title with any regularity, so the PrePub segment would be it.

Amen. Excluding fiction is probably useful for 95% of product searches on logos.com

+1 Yes for vast majority of my searches on logos.com & ebooks.faithlife.com for resources to purchase.

when parens appear to have no effect

This is a regression bug that we introduced when fixing search for product titles that explicitly have parentheses in them (e.g. `X Commentary Set (12 vols.)`).  We'll have a fix out soon (hopefully tomorrow) so that advanced searching like `(John Piper) OR (Bible Study)` works again.
