Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions! We're working on an option for people who want colorless styling and keyboard-friendly dropdowns. We hope to make that live by the end of the week. I'll for sure give you a heads-up on that.
Thanks for attaching the screenshot, it was really helpful. I'm glad the Search Results were better for you the second time. Since products are updated every day, sometimes smaller quantities of grains are out of stock for a day or two, so our system has to substitute bulk items in order to fulfill the request. That might have been the cause of the wonkiness. It's hard to look back a few days to determine search result problems because all of the product data is updated daily.
We'll work on noting at the top when the store is missing an item. I agree, the most expensive deal is NOT the best deal, but we operate under the idea that most of our users would rather know where they can get their entire shopping list at the current moment. Please let me know if you have ideas on how we can do that better.
We didn't put a New Search at the top because users can simply click Shopping List in the top nav bar to get there, but we'll consider if that would be a useful option in the future.
To satisfy your curiosity, the small, empty green box to the right of Profile in the top nav bar is a styling issue with the software we use. It's pretty obnoxious, but in all honesty, though we know aesthetics are important, we usually focus our time on providing more functionality with stores and features than messing with something that just kind of looks funny.
Thanks for all of your time in giving us this excellent feedback! We appreciate it and want to make HomebrewNinja.com a uniquely helpful site for homebrewers so keep it coming!
