    Matt I always watch your videos, thank you or your tips! Can you tell me if there is a way, or if it will be on the way, to have a search function within the “mobile” site. I have a Volusion custom mobile optimized splash page and would really like to see a search function. Thanks!

      Hi JJ, thanks for watching! Glad you find them helpful. We’ve got the addition of search functionality to your store’s mobile site on our product roadmap, so it’s currently in the works. Keep an eye out for updates from us as to when this will be released. Best of luck as we approach the busy holiday selling season – let us know if there’s anything we can do to help!
