Community suggestions: How to fix product lists?

Posted by avatarErik last updated May 16, 2008 at 5:11 pm

This is the current plan:

  • Leaf categories (no sub-categories. ex: a/v receivers, televisions)

    • styled similarly to the home page
    • default sort by recent activity (number of edits/votes in the last week, month, year)
    • add the ability to sort products by MSRP, best/average store price, how many people "have" the product, release date
    • add a mini, category-version of the recent changes feed for the category (eg. a/v receivers feed) that links to a full-blown category feed
    • filter by "facets" like manufacturer, product line, etc.
    • add an inline list of competitors to each product with a link to the respective report
  • High-level categories (with sub-categories, ex: home & garden, electronics)
    • retooled, restyled as more of a directory page listing the most popular leaf categories
    • list all leaf categories with more of a sitemap feel
    • category-specific feed, same as leaf categories
    • no list of products

Not exactly sure when it'll get put up, but hopefully within a few weeks.

Please feel free to chime in if you have any ideas/improvements/complaints.
