The Pipe Locator Gets an Overhaul
What's new today? Well, as of about three minutes ago I received an email I'd been waiting for from Randy, our in-house website developer, letting me know Smokingpipes' new-fangled, bleeding-edge, fool-proof, free with (or without) every purchase, handy, dandy, all-natural, aphrodisiacal, and generally indispensable-to-a-gentlemanly-lifestyle search function is up and running. The long and short of it is that our new search system will allow you to apply multiple filters from a variety of categories to perfectly tailor the results to just what you're looking for. And it's just in time for holiday shopping (sheer coincidence, we assure you).
Let's say, for example, that you get an itch for a smooth Billiard with a vulcanite stem. All you need to do is pick "Billiard" from the shapes drop-down menu, "smooth" from the finishes menu, and "vulcanite" from the stem material menu, click the "Find it!" button, and, huzzah, up pops the results. Now let's say you want to pare it down a little closer: You only want a Danish or English Billiard, say. There's no need to go through everything all over again – just pick "Denmark" from the country menu, then after that, "England" (it will save each option you select), and hit "Find it!" again. You'll notice that each option you pick will instantly appear in a list just below the relevant menu, each with a little red-and-white "X" symbol you can click to remove it from your specifications. In this way you can change things up freely and without fuss.
So, try it out and have fun with it, and if you're feeling up to it, you're even welcome to have a go at getting it to bug out - Sykes and Randy have tested it as much as two men are able, but if there's a glitch hiding in there that we haven't stumbled across yet, we'd like to know about it. We're always trying to improve what we have to offer our customers here at Smokingpipes, after all - which of course was the whole idea behind this project in the first place.
