Hey there! As a forum moderator, it's sooooo exciting to see people that have been members of the site for YEARS and are now making it to the forums because you're EXCITED about the changes, and have suggestions. Awesome!
I do see you've been in here before. I'm not 100% on this, but I do believe that the option to search the ENTIRE site (which of course should include searching songbooks) is in the works. If you go to the Home Page and type in "1980" as an example, you'll get this before hitting "search":
No direct match in songs or artist names. Submit to do free text search
Sadly, after hitting "search" you'll get this:
Sorry, but text search is not included yet. Still waiting for the service providers to fix a faulty cable. Should be done in 48 hours....
Now... I'm not sure if it'll be done in 48 hours or not... but... I'm hopeful this means it'll be SOON! Thank you so much for the suggestion, and I'll make sure our AMAZING ADMIN sees this! In the meantime, did you see the NEW options for filtering Public Songbooks? I'm loving it. I like your idea as well!
Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
